function dpgettext(domain: String, msgctxtid: String, msgidoffset: Number(gsize)): String {
    // Gjs wrapper for g_dpgettext()

This function is a variant of GLib.dgettext which supports a disambiguating message context. GNU gettext uses the '\004' character to separate the message context and message id in msgctxtid. If 0 is passed as msgidoffset, this function will fall back to trying to use the deprecated convention of using "|" as a separation character.

This uses GLib.dgettext internally. See that functions for differences with dgettext() proper.

Applications should normally not use this function directly, but use the C_() macro for translations with context.
