Re: Implementing GObject interfaces in Python

Related to this, I am having trouble with g_param_spec_object(). I
would like to pass an interface as the fourth parameter to this
procedure (e.g., FOO_TYPE_SOME_INTERFACE). However, when I do so, Python
code that tries to set the corresponding property terminates and prints:

      Warning: g_object_new_valist:
      object class 'ClassX' has no property named 'p'

where p is the property that should be an interface.
How are you creating the property ?

the "correct" approach is the following:

class SomeClass(GObject.Object, App.Iface):
  p = GObject.Property(type=GObject.Type)
  def __init__(self, arg1, arg2, arg3, arg4):

    self.p = arg4

Note that you should subclass a concrete object type, just as Simon
McVittie told.

if can I ask, why are you trying to pass an interface as parameter to
class constructor ? Some interfaces requires you to install some
properties, for example Gtk.Orientable requires that you install
"orientation" property. I can't imagine a use for this.

Any way, the syntax for creating properties is described above.

If you want a example of a custom type implementing a interface you can
