I completely forgot to include the failure case here.

this code works for cancel, correct and incorrect password, but when the user presses OK without entering any password into the field it returns as if the password was accepted.

snippet of code:
std::cout << "testGKsu();" << std::endl;

GksuContext* context = gksu_context_new();

gksu_context_set_message(context, "Mumblefoo");
gksu_context_set_command(context, cmd);
gksu_context_set_grab(context, TRUE);

GError *suErrValue = NULL;
gboolean runResult =
gksu_sudo_full(context, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, &suErrValue);

if (suErrValue) {
std::cout << "suErrValue: " << suErrValue->message << std::endl;
std::cout << " runResult: " << runResult << std::endl;


runResult: 0
Program done.
