Variant.from_bytes


Description:

[ Version ( since = "2.36" ) ]
public Variant.from_bytes (VariantType type, Bytes bytes, bool trusted)

Constructs a new serialised-mode Variant instance.

This is the inner interface for creation of new serialised values that gets called from various functions in gvariant.c.

A reference is taken on bytes.

The data in bytes must be aligned appropriately for the type being loaded. Otherwise this function will internally create a copy of the memory (since GLib 2.60) or (in older versions) fail and exit the process.

Parameters:

type

a VariantType

bytes

a Bytes

trusted

if the contents of bytes are trusted

Returns:

a new Variant with a floating reference
