XLib-XRender Backend

XLib-XRender Backend — X Window System rendering using XLib and the X Render extension

Types and Values

Description

The XLib surface is used to render cairo graphics to X Window System windows and pixmaps using the XLib and Xrender libraries.

Note that the XLib surface automatically takes advantage of X Render extension if it is available.

Functions

cairo_xlib_surface_create_with_xrender_format ()

cairo_surface_t *
cairo_xlib_surface_create_with_xrender_format
                               (Display *dpy,
                                Drawable drawable,
                                Screen *screen,
                                XRenderPictFormat *format,
                                int width,
                                int height);

Creates an Xlib surface that draws to the given drawable. The way that colors are represented in the drawable is specified by the provided picture format.

Note: If drawable is a Window, then the function cairo_xlib_surface_set_size() must be called whenever the size of the window changes.

Returns

the XRenderPictFormat* associated with surface , or NULL if the surface is not an xlib surface or if the X Render extension is not available.
