Description Murray Cumming 2008-10-14 02:07:24 UTC
This is tedious:

  /* Get the connection manager name: */
  gchar *cm_name = NULL;
  g_object_get (G_OBJECT(cm),
    "connection-manager", &cm_name,

So this would be nicer:

gchar* cm_name = tp_connection_manager_get_name (cm);

The idea was that you'd just use the read-only member connection_manager->name (which is marked as public at the moment).

I realise public struct members are often considered harmful; we're gradually introducing C convenience API and deprecating direct access (TpProxy will get this in the next version, TpChannel already has it).

Fixed in 0.7.26, along with lots of other "C bindings" for TpConnectionManager
