gimpplugin — Functions useful for plug-ins, e.g. registration and progress indicators.

Description

Functions useful for plug-ins, e.g. registration and progress indicators.

Functions

gimp_plugin_domain_register ()

gboolean
gimp_plugin_domain_register (const gchar *domain_name,
                             const gchar *domain_path);

Registers a textdomain for localisation.

This procedure adds a textdomain to the list of domains Gimp searches for strings when translating its menu entries. There is no need to call this function for plug-ins that have their strings included in the 'gimp-std-plugins' domain as that is used by default. If the compiled message catalog is not in the standard location, you may specify an absolute path to another location. This procedure can only be called in the query function of a plug-in and it has to be called before any procedure is installed.

Parameters

domain_name

The name of the textdomain (must be unique).

 

domain_path

The absolute path to the compiled message catalog (may be NULL).

 

Returns

TRUE on success.


gimp_plugin_help_register ()

gboolean
gimp_plugin_help_register (const gchar *domain_name,
                           const gchar *domain_uri);

Register a help path for a plug-in.

This procedure registers user documentation for the calling plug-in with the GIMP help system. The domain_uri parameter points to the root directory where the plug-in help is installed. For each supported language there should be a file called 'gimp-help.xml' that maps the help IDs to the actual help files.

Parameters

domain_name

The XML namespace of the plug-in's help pages.

 

domain_uri

The root URI of the plug-in's help pages.

 

Returns

TRUE on success.


gimp_plugin_icon_register ()

gboolean
gimp_plugin_icon_register (const gchar *procedure_name,
                           GimpIconType icon_type,
                           const guint8 *icon_data);

gimp_plugin_menu_register ()

gboolean
gimp_plugin_menu_register (const gchar *procedure_name,
                           const gchar *menu_path);

Register an additional menu path for a plug-in procedure.

This procedure installs an additional menu entry for the given procedure.

Parameters

procedure_name

The procedure for which to install the menu path.

 

menu_path

The procedure's additional menu path.

 

Returns

TRUE on success.

Since: 2.2


gimp_plugin_menu_branch_register ()

gboolean
gimp_plugin_menu_branch_register (const gchar *menu_path,
                                  const gchar *menu_name);

Register a sub-menu.

This procedure installs a sub-menu which does not belong to any procedure. The menu-name should be the untranslated menu label. GIMP will look up the translation in the textdomain registered for the plug-in.

Parameters

menu_path

The sub-menu's menu path.

 

menu_name

The name of the sub-menu.

 

Returns

TRUE on success.

Since: 2.4


gimp_plugin_set_pdb_error_handler ()

gboolean
gimp_plugin_set_pdb_error_handler (GimpPDBErrorHandler handler);

Sets an error handler for procedure calls.

This procedure changes the way that errors in procedure calls are handled. By default GIMP will raise an error dialog if a procedure call made by a plug-in fails. Using this procedure the plug-in can change this behavior. If the error handler is set to GIMP_PDB_ERROR_HANDLER_PLUGIN, then the plug-in is responsible for calling gimp_get_pdb_error() and handling the error whenever one if its procedure calls fails. It can do this by displaying the error message or by forwarding it in its own return values.

Parameters

handler

Who is responsible for handling procedure call errors.

 

Returns

TRUE on success.

Since: 2.6


gimp_plugin_get_pdb_error_handler ()

GimpPDBErrorHandler
gimp_plugin_get_pdb_error_handler (void);

Retrieves the active error handler for procedure calls.

This procedure retrieves the currently active error handler for procedure calls made by the calling plug-in. See gimp_plugin_set_pdb_error_handler() for details.

Returns

Who is responsible for handling procedure call errors.

Since: 2.6


gimp_plugin_enable_precision ()

gboolean
gimp_plugin_enable_precision (void);

Switches this plug-in to using the real bit depth of drawables.

Switches this plug-in to using the real bit depth of drawables. This setting can only be enabled, and not disabled again during the lifetime of the plug-in. Using gimp_drawable_get_buffer(), gimp_drawable_get_shadow_buffer() or gimp_drawable_get_format() will automatically call this function.

Returns

TRUE on success.

Since: 2.10


gimp_plugin_precision_enabled ()

gboolean
gimp_plugin_precision_enabled (void);

Whether this plug-in is using the real bit depth of drawables.

Returns whether this plug-in is using the real bit depth of drawables, which can be more than 8 bits per channel.

Returns

Whether precision is enabled.

Since: 2.10
