Detailed Description

Plugin Signals.

Usage

To use plugin signals in Geany, you have two options:

-# Create a PluginCallback array with the @ref plugin_callbacks symbol. List the signals
   you want to listen to and create the appropiate signal callbacks for each signal.
   The callback array is read @a after plugin_init() has been called.
-# Use plugin_signal_connect(), which can be called at any time and can also connect
   to non-Geany signals (such as GTK widget signals).

This page lists the signal prototypes, but you connect to them using the
string name (which by convention uses @c - hyphens instead of @c _ underscores).

E.g. @c "document-open" for @ref document_open.

The following code demonstrates how to use signals in Geany plugins. The code can be inserted
in your plugin code at any desired position.
static void on_document_open(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, gpointer user_data)
{
printf("Example: %s was opened\n", DOC_FILENAME(doc));
}
{
{ "document-open", (GCallback) &on_document_open, FALSE, NULL },
{ NULL, NULL, FALSE, NULL }
};
Note
The PluginCallback array has to be ended with a final NULL entry.

Variable Documentation

signal void(* build_start)(GObject *obj, gpointer user_data)

Sent before build is started.

A plugin could use this signal e.g. to save all unsaved documents before the build starts.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* document_activate)(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, gpointer user_data)

Sent when switching notebook pages.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
docthe current document.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* document_before_save)(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, gpointer user_data)

Sent before a document is saved.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
docthe document to be saved.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* document_close)(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, gpointer user_data)

Sent before closing a document.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
docthe document about to be closed.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* document_filetype_set)(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, GeanyFiletype *filetype_old, gpointer user_data)

Sent after the filetype of a document has been changed.

The previous filetype object is passed but it can be NULL (e.g. at startup). The new filetype can be read with:

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
docthe saved document.
filetype_oldthe previous filetype of the document.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* document_new)(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, gpointer user_data)

Sent when a new document is created.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
docthe new document.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* document_open)(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, gpointer user_data)

Sent when a new document is opened.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
docthe opened document.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* document_reload)(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, gpointer user_data)

Sent when an existing document is reloaded.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
docthe re-opened document.
user_datauser data.
Since
0.21
signal void(* document_save)(GObject *obj, GeanyDocument *doc, gpointer user_data)

Sent when a new document is saved.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
docthe saved document.
user_datauser data.
signal gboolean(* editor_notify)(GObject *obj, GeanyEditor *editor, SCNotification *nt, gpointer user_data)

Sent whenever something in the editor widget changes.

E.g. Character added, fold level changes, clicks to the line number margin. A detailed description of possible notifications and the SCNotification can be found at http://www.scintilla.org/ScintillaDoc.html#Notifications.

If you connect to this signal, you must check nt->nmhdr.code for the notification type to prevent handling unwanted notifications. This is important because for instance SCN_UPDATEUI is sent very often whereas you probably don't want to handle this notification.

By default, the signal is sent before Geany's default handler is processing the event. Your callback function should return FALSE to allow Geany processing the event as well. If you want to prevent this for some reason, return TRUE. Please use this with care as it can break basic functionality of Geany.

The signal can be sent after Geany's default handler has been run when you set PluginCallback::after field to TRUE.

An example callback implemention of this signal can be found in the Demo plugin.

Warning
This signal has much power and should be used carefully. You should especially care about the return value; make sure to return TRUE only if it is necessary and in the correct situations.
Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
editorThe current GeanyEditor.
ntA pointer to the SCNotification struct which holds additional information for the event.
user_datauser data.
Returns
TRUE to stop other handlers from being invoked for the event. FALSE to propagate the event further.
Since
0.16
signal void(* geany_startup_complete)(GObject *obj, gpointer user_data)

Sent once Geany has finished all initialization and startup tasks and the GUI has been realized.

This signal is the very last step in the startup process and is sent once the GTK main event loop has been entered.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* project_close)(GObject *obj, gpointer user_data)

Sent after a project is closed.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* project_dialog_close)(GObject *obj, GtkWidget *notebook, gpointer user_data)

Sent before project dialog is closed.

By using this signal, plugins can remove tabs previously added in project-dialog-open signal handler.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
notebooka GtkNotebook instance that can be used by plugins to remove settings tabs previously added in the project-dialog-open signal handler.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* project_dialog_confirmed)(GObject *obj, GtkWidget *notebook, gpointer user_data)

Sent when the settings dialog is confirmed by the user.

Plugins can use this signal to read the settings widgets previously added by using the project-dialog-open signal.

Warning
The dialog will still be running afterwards if the user chose 'Apply'.
Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
notebooka GtkNotebook instance that can be used by plugins to read their settings widgets.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* project_dialog_open)(GObject *obj, GtkWidget *notebook, gpointer user_data)

Sent after a project dialog is opened but before it is displayed.

Plugins can append their own project settings tabs by using this signal.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
notebooka GtkNotebook instance that can be used by plugins to append their settings tabs.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* project_open)(GObject *obj, GKeyFile *config, gpointer user_data)

Sent after a project is opened but before session files are loaded.

Parameters
obja GeanyObject instance, should be ignored.
configan exising GKeyFile object which can be used to read and write data. It must not be closed or freed.
user_datauser data.
signal void(* project_save)(GObject *obj, GKeyFile *config, gpointer user_data)

Sent when a project is saved(happens when the project is created, the properties dialog is closed or Geany is exited).

This signal is emitted shortly before Geany will write the contents of the GKeyFile to the disc.

Parameters

This can be used to modify or extend the popup menu.
