Gets the current name in the file selector, as entered by the user in the text entry for “Name”.

This is meant to be used in save dialogs, to get the currently typed filename when the file itself does not exist yet. For example, an application that adds a custom extra widget to the file chooser for “file format” may want to change the extension of the typed filename based on the chosen format, say, from “.jpg” to “.png”.

interface FileChooserIF

Return Value

Type: string

The raw text from the file chooser’s “Name” entry. Free this with g_free(). Note that this string is not a full pathname or URI; it is whatever the contents of the entry are. Note also that this string is in UTF-8 encoding, which is not necessarily the system’s encoding for filenames.
