Description

 
Synopsis

Details

The Volume interface represents user-visible objects that can be mounted. Note, when porting from GnomeVFS, Volume is the moral equivalent of GnomeVFSDrive.

Mounting a Volume instance is an asynchronous operation. For more information about asynchronous operations, see AsyncReady and GSimpleAsyncReady. To mount a Volume, first call volumeMount with (at least) the Volume instance, optionally a MountOperation object and a AsyncReadyCallback.

Typically, one will only want to pass Nothing for the MountOperation if automounting all volumes when a desktop session starts since it's not desirable to put up a lot of dialogs asking for credentials.

The callback will be fired when the operation has resolved (either with success or failure), and a AsyncReady structure will be passed to the callback. That callback should then call volumeMountFinish with the Volume instance and the AsyncReady data to see if the operation was completed successfully. If an error is present when volumeMountFinish is called, then it will be filled with any error information.

It is sometimes necessary to directly access the underlying operating system object behind a volume (e.g. for passing a volume to an application via the commandline). For this purpose, GIO allows to obtain an identifier for the volume. There can be different kinds of identifiers, such as Hal UDIs, filesystem labels, traditional Unix devices (e.g. devsda2), uuids. GIO uses predefind strings as names for the different kinds of identifiers: VolumeIdentifierKindHalUdi, VolumeIdentifierKindLabel, etc. Use volumeGetIdentifier to obtain an identifier for a volume.

Note that VolumeIdentifierKindHalUdi will only be available when the gvfs hal volume monitor is in use. Other volume monitors will generally be able to provide the VolumeIdentifierKindUnixDevice identifier, which can be used to obtain a hal device by means of mangerFindDeviceStringMatch.

Methods

volumeGetName Source #

Arguments

:: (VolumeClass volume, GlibString string) 
=> volume 
-> IO string

returns the name for the given volume.

Gets the name of volume.

volumeGetUUID Source #

Arguments

:: (VolumeClass volume, GlibString string) 
=> volume 
-> IO (Maybe string)

returns the UUID for volume or Nothing if no UUID can be computed.

Gets the UUID for the volume. The reference is typically based on the file system UUID for the volume in question and should be considered an opaque string. Returns Nothing if there is no UUID available.

volumeGetIcon :: VolumeClass volume => volume -> IO Icon Source #

Gets the icon for volume.

volumeGetDrive Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> IO (Maybe Drive)

returns a Drive or Nothing if volume is not associated with a drive.

Gets the drive for the volume.

volumeGetMount Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> IO (Maybe Mount)

returns a Mount or Nothing if volume is not associated with a mount.

Gets the mount for the volume.

volumeCanMount Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> IO Bool

returns True if the volume can be mounted. False otherwise.

Checks if a volume can be mounted.

volumeShouldAutomount Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> IO Bool

returns True if the volume should be automatically mounted.

Returns whether the volume should be automatically mounted.

volumeGetActivationRoot Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> IO (Maybe File)

returns the activation root of volume or Nothing.

Gets the activation root for a Volume if it is known ahead of mount time. Returns Nothing otherwise. If not Nothing and if volume is mounted, then the result of mountGetRoot on the Mount object obtained from volumeGetMount will always either be equal or a prefix of what this function returns.

volumeMount Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> [MountMountFlags]

flags flags affecting the operation

-> Maybe MountOperation

mountOperation a MountOperation or Nothing to avoid user interaction.

-> Maybe Cancellable

cancellable optional Cancellable object, Nothing to ignore.

-> AsyncReadyCallback

callback a AsyncReadyCallback

-> IO () 

Mounts a volume. This is an asynchronous operation, and is finished by calling volumeMountFinish with the volume and AsyncResult returned in the callback.

volumeMountFinish Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> AsyncResult

result a AsyncResult

-> IO () 

Finishes mounting a volume. If any errors occured during the operation, error will be set to contain the errors and False will be returned.

If the mount operation succeeded, volumeGetMount on volume is guaranteed to return the mount right after calling this function; there's no need to listen for the 'mount-added' signal on VolumeMonitor.

Throws a GError if an error occurs.

volumeCanEject Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> IO Bool

returns True if the volume can be ejected. False otherwise.

Checks if a volume can be ejected.

volumeEjectWithOperation Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> [MountUnmountFlags]

flags flags affecting the unmount if required for eject

-> Maybe MountOperation

mountOperation a MountOperation or Nothing to avoid user interaction.

-> Maybe Cancellable

cancellable optional Cancellable object, Nothing to ignore.

-> AsyncReadyCallback

callback a AsyncReadyCallback

-> IO () 

Ejects a volume. This is an asynchronous operation, and is finished by calling volumeEjectWithOperationFinish with the volume and AsyncResult data returned in the callback.

volumeEjectWithOperationFinish Source #

Arguments

:: VolumeClass volume 
=> volume 
-> AsyncResult

result a AsyncResult.

-> IO () 

Finishes ejecting a volume. If any errors occurred during the operation, error will be set to contain the errors and False will be returned.

Throws a GError if an error occurs.

volumeEnumerateIdentifiers :: (VolumeClass volume, GlibString string) => volume -> IO [string] Source #

Gets the kinds of identifiers that volume has. Use volumeGetIdentifer to obtain the identifiers themselves.

volumeGetIdentifier Source #

Arguments

:: (VolumeClass volume, GlibString string) 
=> volume 
-> string

kind the kind of identifier to return

-> IO string 

Gets the identifier of the given kind for volume. See the introduction for more information about volume identifiers.

Signals

volumeChanged :: VolumeClass volume => Signal volume (IO ()) Source #

Emitted when the volume has been changed.

volumeRemoved :: VolumeClass volume => Signal volume (IO ()) Source #

This signal is emitted when the Volume have been removed. If the recipient is holding references to the object they should release them so the object can be finalized.
