Error name bound exceptions

These exceptions are bound to specific dbus error names. For example, DbusFailedError is bound to org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Failed error name.

This means if the remote object sends an error message with this error name the Python will receive this exception.

When raised in a method callback an error message will be sent back to caller.

See list of error exceptions.

New error bound exceptions

If you want to create a new error bound exception you should subclass it from DbusFailedError and provide a unique dbus_error_name attribute in the exception body definition.


class DbusExampleError(DbusFailedError):
    dbus_error_name = 'org.example.Error'

If dbus_error_name is not unique the ValueError will be raised.

Defining an exception will automatically bind incoming error message to this new exception.

Other exceptions

exception SdBusUnmappedMessageError
