Net::DBus::Binding::PendingCall - A handler for pending method replies
my $call = Net::DBus::Binding::PendingCall->new(method_call => $call,
pending_call => $reply);
# Wait for completion
# And get the reply message
my $msg = $call->get_reply;
This object is used when it is necessary to make asynchronous method
calls. It provides the means to be notified when the reply is finally
- my $call = Net::DBus::Binding::PendingCall->new(method_call => $method_call, pending_call => $pending_call);
Creates a new pending call object, with the "method_call" parameter
being a reference to the "Net::DBus::Binding::Message::MethodCall"
object whose reply is being waiting for. The "pending_call" parameter
is a reference to the raw C pending call object.
Cancel the pending call, causing any reply that is later received
to be discarded.
- my $boolean = $call->get_completed
Returns a true value if the pending call has received its reply,
or a timeout has occurred.
Block the caller until the reply is received or a timeout
- my $msg = $call->get_reply;
Retrieves the "Net::DBus::Binding::Message" object associated
with the complete call.
Sets a notification function to be invoked when the pending
call completes. The callback will be passed a single argument
which is this pending call object.
