Typedef Documentation

typedef struct _PurpleStoredImage PurpleStoredImage

A set of utility functions that provide a reference-counted immutable wrapper around an image's data and filename.

These functions do not cache any data to disk.

Definition at line 37 of file imgstore.h.

Function Documentation

PurpleStoredImage* purple_imgstore_add ( gpointer  data,
size_t  size,
const char *  filename 
)

Create a new PurpleStoredImage.

Despite the name of this function, the image is NOT added to the image store and no ID is assigned. If you need to reference the image by an ID, use purple_imgstore_add_with_id() instead.

The caller owns a reference to this image and must dereference it with purple_imgstore_unref() for it to be freed.

Parameters
dataPointer to the image data, which the imgstore will take ownership of and free as appropriate. If you want a copy of the data, make it before calling this function.
sizeImage data's size.
filenameFilename associated with image. This is for your convenience. It could be the full path to the image or, more commonly, the filename of the image without any directory information. It can also be NULL, if you don't need to keep track of a filename.
Returns
The stored image, or NULL if the image was not added (because of empty data or size).
int purple_imgstore_add_with_id ( gpointer  data,
size_t  size,
const char *  filename 
)

Create a PurpleStoredImage using purple_imgstore_add() and add the image to the image store.

A unique ID will be assigned to the image.

The caller owns a reference to the image and must dereference it with purple_imgstore_unref() or purple_imgstore_unref_by_id() for it to be freed.

Parameters
dataPointer to the image data, which the imgstore will take ownership of and free as appropriate. If you want a copy of the data, make it before calling this function.
sizeImage data's size.
filenameFilename associated with image. This is for your convenience. It could be the full path to the image or, more commonly, the filename of the image without any directory information. It can also be NULL, if you don't need to keep track of a filename.
Returns
ID for the image. This is a unique number that can be used within libpurple to reference the image. 0 is returned if the image was not added (because of empty data or size).
PurpleStoredImage* purple_imgstore_find_by_id ( int  id)

Retrieve an image from the store.

The caller does not own a reference to the image.

Parameters
idThe ID for the image.
Returns
A pointer to the requested image, or NULL if it was not found.
gconstpointer purple_imgstore_get_data ( PurpleStoredImage img)

Retrieves a pointer to the image's data.

Parameters
imgThe Image.
Returns
A pointer to the data, which must not be freed or modified.
const char* purple_imgstore_get_extension ( PurpleStoredImage img)

Looks at the magic numbers of the image data (the first few bytes) and returns an extension corresponding to the image's file type.

Parameters
imgThe image.
Returns
The image's extension (for example "png") or "icon" if unknown.
const char* purple_imgstore_get_filename ( const PurpleStoredImage img)

Retrieves a pointer to the image's filename.

Parameters
imgThe image.
Returns
A pointer to the filename, which must not be freed or modified.
void* purple_imgstore_get_handle ( void  )

Returns the image store subsystem handle.

Returns
The subsystem handle.
size_t purple_imgstore_get_size ( PurpleStoredImage img)

Retrieves the length of the image's data.

Parameters
imgThe Image.
Returns
The size of the data that the pointer returned by purple_imgstore_get_data points to.
PurpleStoredImage* purple_imgstore_new_from_file ( const char *  path)

Create a PurpleStoredImage using purple_imgstore_add() by reading the given filename from disk.

The image is not added to the image store and no ID is assigned. If you need to reference the image by an ID, use purple_imgstore_add_with_id() instead.

The caller owns a reference to this image and must dereference it with purple_imgstore_unref() for it to be freed.

Parameters
pathThe path to the image.
Returns
The stored image, or NULL if the image was not added (because of empty data or size).
Since
2.5.0
PurpleStoredImage* purple_imgstore_ref ( PurpleStoredImage img)

Increment the reference count.

Parameters
imgThe image.
Returns
img
void purple_imgstore_ref_by_id ( int  id)

Increment the reference count using an ID.

This is a convience wrapper for purple_imgstore_find_by_id() and purple_imgstore_ref(), so if you have a PurpleStoredImage, it'll be more efficient to call purple_imgstore_ref() directly.

Parameters
idThe ID for the image.
PurpleStoredImage* purple_imgstore_unref ( PurpleStoredImage img)

Decrement the reference count.

If the reference count reaches zero, the image will be freed.

Parameters
imgThe image.
Returns
img or NULL if the reference count reached zero.
void purple_imgstore_unref_by_id ( int  id)

Decrement the reference count using an ID.

This is a convience wrapper for purple_imgstore_find_by_id() and purple_imgstore_unref(), so if you have a PurpleStoredImage, it'll be more efficient to call purple_imgstore_unref() directly.

Parameters
idThe ID for the image.
