List of examples

Download all examples


This example shows how to bring an application to foreground using osso.Application.application_top().

Auto-saving / State Saving

These examples show how to use the auto-saving and state saving features from python-osso. Each file is a separate example.

  • - The same objects from the example below, but instead of calling the save function directly, any changes call user_data_changed, and when exiting force_autosave is called.
  • - Creates a gtk.Entry and a gtk.HScale. It saves the state when the application goes to background or exits, restoring the state on the next startup, unless the device resets or is turned off.

Device State

These examples show how to interact with the display and the device.


These examples show how to use HELP and enable the "?" button in dialogs

  • - Shows two buttons: one to load a help topic and another to open a dialog with an "?" button in titlebar.


These examples show how use the MIME functions.


This example shows how to load plugins.


These examples show how to make remote procedure calls using python-osso.

Status Bar

Time Notification

This example registers a callback and tries to set the system time. Notice: Currently this won't change the time. (Even in C).
