Member Function Documentation¶
void wl_client_add_resource_created_listener (struct wl_client * client, struct wl_listener * listener)¶Add a listener for the client's resource creation signal
listener The listener to be added
When a new resource is created for this client the listener will be notified, carrying the new resource as the data argument.
void wl_client_flush (struct wl_client * client)¶Flush pending events to the client
Events sent to clients are queued in a buffer and written to the socket later - typically when the compositor has handled all requests and goes back to block in the event loop. This function flushes all queued up events for a client immediately.
void wl_client_for_each_resource (struct wl_client * client, wl_client_for_each_resource_iterator_func_t iterator, void * user_data)¶Iterate over all the resources of a client
iterator The iterator function
user_data The user data pointer
The function pointed by iterator will be called for each resource owned by the client. The user_data will be passed as the second argument of the iterator function. If the iterator function returns WL_ITERATOR_CONTINUE the iteration will continue, if it returns WL_ITERATOR_STOP it will stop.
Creating and destroying resources while iterating is safe, but new resources may or may not be picked up by the iterator.
struct wl_client * wl_client_from_link (struct wl_list * link)¶Get a wl_client by its link
void wl_client_get_credentials (struct wl_client * client, pid_t * pid, uid_t * uid, gid_t * gid)¶Return Unix credentials for the client
pid Returns the process ID
uid Returns the user ID
gid Returns the group ID
This function returns the process ID, the user ID and the group ID for the given client. The credentials come from getsockopt() with SO_PEERCRED, on the client socket fd. All the pointers can be NULL, if the caller is not interested in a particular ID.
Be aware that for clients that a compositor forks and execs and then connects using socketpair(), this function will return the credentials for the compositor. The credentials for the socketpair are set at creation time in the compositor.
struct wl_display * wl_client_get_display (struct wl_client * client)¶Get the display object for the given client
int wl_client_get_fd (struct wl_client * client)¶Get the file descriptor for the client
This function returns the file descriptor for the given client.
Be sure to use the file descriptor from the client for inspection only. If the caller does anything to the file descriptor that changes its state, it will likely cause problems.
See also wl_client_get_credentials(). It is recommended that you evaluate whether wl_client_get_credentials() can be applied to your use case instead of this function.
If you would like to distinguish just between the client and the compositor itself from the client's request, it can be done by getting the client credentials and by checking the PID of the client and the compositor's PID. Regarding the case in which the socketpair() is being used, you need to be careful. Please note the documentation for wl_client_get_credentials().
This function can be used for a compositor to validate a request from a client if there are additional information provided from the client's file descriptor. For instance, suppose you can get the security contexts from the client's file descriptor. The compositor can validate the client's request with the contexts and make a decision whether it permits or deny it.
struct wl_list * wl_client_get_link (struct wl_client * client)¶Get the link by which a client is inserted in the client list
struct wl_resource * wl_client_get_object (struct wl_client * client, uint32_t id)¶Look up an object in the client name space
id The object id
This looks up an object in the client object name space by its object ID.
