use_thread_context


Description:

[ NoAccessorMethod ]
[ Version ( since = "2.38" ) ]
public bool use_thread_context { set; get; }

If true (which it always is on a plain Session), asynchronous HTTP requests in this session will run in whatever the thread-default MainContext is at the time they are started, rather than always occurring in async_context .

Example: Request API, async:

private static async void read_lines_async (InputStream stream) throws IOError {
DataInputStream data_stream = new DataInputStream (stream);
string line;

while ((line = yield data_stream.read_line_async ()) != null) {
print (line);
print ("\n");
}
}

public static int main (string[] args) {
MainLoop loop = new MainLoop ();

// Create a session:
Soup.Session session = new Soup.Session ();
session.use_thread_context = true;

// Request a file:
try {
Soup.Request request = session.request ("http://api.valadoc.org/soup-samples/my-secret.txt");
request.send_async.begin (null, (obj, res) => {
// print the content:
try {
InputStream stream = request.send_async.end (res);
read_lines_async.begin (stream, (obj, res) => {
// Exit
loop.quit ();
});
} catch (Error e) {
stderr.printf ("Error: %s\n", e.message);
}
});
} catch (Error e) {
stderr.printf ("Error: %s\n", e.message);
}

loop.run ();
return 0;
}
