Object methods

🔗 :invoke (notif)
Execute this action.

This only emits the invoked signal.

Parameters:

Name Type(s) Description Default value
notif Optional naughty.notification A notification object on which the action was invoked. If a notification is shared by many object (like a "mute" or "snooze" action added to all notification), calling :invoke() without adding the notif context will cause unexpected results. {}

Emit a signal.

Parameters:

Name Type(s) Description
name string The name of the signal.
... Extra arguments for the callback functions. Each connected function receives the object as first argument and then any extra arguments that are given to emit_signal().

Connect to a signal.

Parameters:

Name Type(s) Description
name string The name of the signal.
func function The callback to call when the signal is emitted.
🔗 :weak_connect_signal (name, func) · Inherited from gears.object
Connect to a signal weakly.

Parameters:

Name Type(s) Description
name string The name of the signal.
func function The callback to call when the signal is emitted.
