gupnp_service_signals_autoconnect ()

void                gupnp_service_signals_autoconnect   (GUPnPService *service,
                                                         gpointer user_data,
                                                         GError **error);

A convenience function that attempts to connect all possible "action-invoked" and "query-variable" signals to appropriate callbacks for the service service. It uses service introspection and GModule's introspective features. It is very simillar to glade_xml_signal_autoconnect() except that it attempts to guess the names of the signal handlers on its own.

For this function to do its magic, the application must name the callback functions for "action-invoked" signals by striping the CamelCase off the action names and either prepend "on_" or append "_cb" to them. Same goes for "query-variable" signals, except that "query_" should be prepended to the variable name. For example, callback function for "GetSystemUpdateID" action should be either named as "get_system_update_id_cb" or "on_get_system_update_id" and callback function for the query of "SystemUpdateID" state variable should be named "query_system_update_id_cb" or "on_query_system_update_id".

Note that this function will not work correctly if GModule is not supported on the platform or introspection is not available for service service.

WARNING: This function can not and therefore does not guarantee that the resulting signal connections will be correct as it depends heavily on a particular naming schemes described above.

A GUPnPService

user_data :

the data to pass to each of the callbacks

error :

return location for a GError, or NULL
