Description:

[ Version ( since = "2.28" ) ]
public abstract unowned VariantType? get_action_state_type (string action_name)

Queries the type of the state of the named action within this.

If the action is stateful then this function returns the VariantType of the state. All calls to change_action_state must give a Variant of this type and get_action_state will return a Variant of the same type.

If the action is not stateful then this function will return null. In that case, get_action_state will return null and you must not call change_action_state .

The state type of a particular action will never change but it is possible for an action to be removed and for a new action to be added with the same name but a different state type.

Parameters:

this

a ActionGroup

action_name

the name of the action to query

the state type, if the action is stateful
