Re: Can't add new GTK 2.16 methods to GtkStyle

I'm trying to complete the patch set for GTK 2.16 but I can't get the
file GtkStyle.xs to compile.

I get the following errors when I try to build the module:

[ XS xs/GtkStyle.xs ]
Error: 'GType' not in typemap in GtkStyle.xs, line 582
Error: 'void' not in typemap in GtkStyle.xs, line 593
make: *** [xs/GtkStyle.c] Error 1

Looks like if I can't use GType as an argument type of an XS parameter.

Yes, we try to avoid exposing GType.  Instead, we let the programmer pass in
package names and convert those to a GType with gperl_type_from_package().

gtk_style_get_property (style, widget_type, property_name, ...)
    GtkStyle    *style
    GType       widget_type
    const gchar *property_name
            GValue value = {0,};

        gtk_style_get_property (style, widget_type, property_name, &value);
        RETVAL = sv_2mortal (gperl_sv_from_value (&value));
        g_value_unset (&value);


First of all, you'll want to use SV* instead of void as the return type.  (I'm
not sure whether the typemap for SV* automatically calls sv_2mortal, in which
case it's not necessary in the CODE section.)  Then the GValue will need to be
initialized for which you need to know the type of the property.  I think this
will have to look something like this (modulo error checking):

  GParamSpec *pspec = gtk_widget_class_find_style_property (
    g_type_class_peek (widget_type), property_name);
  g_value_init (&value, G_PARAM_SPEC_VALUE_TYPE (pspec));
