Images

Images — A client-side area for bit-mapped graphics

Types and Values

Includes

#include <gdk/gdk.h>

Description

The GdkImage type represents an area for drawing graphics. It has now been superceded to a large extent by the much more flexible GdkRGB functions.

To create an empty GdkImage use gdk_image_new(). To create a GdkImage from bitmap data use gdk_image_new_bitmap(). To create an image from part of a GdkWindow use gdk_drawable_get_image().

The image can be manipulated with gdk_image_get_pixel() and gdk_image_put_pixel(), or alternatively by changing the actual pixel data. Though manipulating the pixel data requires complicated code to cope with the different formats that may be used.

To draw a GdkImage in a GdkWindow or GdkPixmap use gdk_draw_image().

To destroy a GdkImage use gdk_image_destroy().

Functions

gdk_image_new ()

GdkImage *
gdk_image_new (GdkImageType type,
               GdkVisual *visual,
               gint width,
               gint height);

gdk_image_new is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Creates a new GdkImage.

Parameters

type

the type of the GdkImage, one of GDK_IMAGE_NORMAL, GDK_IMAGE_SHARED and GDK_IMAGE_FASTEST. GDK_IMAGE_FASTEST is probably the best choice, since it will try creating a GDK_IMAGE_SHARED image first and if that fails it will then use GDK_IMAGE_NORMAL.

 

visual

the GdkVisual to use for the image.

 

width

the width of the image in pixels.

 

height

the height of the image in pixels.

 

Returns

a new GdkImage, or NULL if the image could not be created.


gdk_image_new_bitmap ()

GdkImage *
gdk_image_new_bitmap (GdkVisual *visual,
                      gpointer data,
                      gint width,
                      gint height);

gdk_image_new_bitmap is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Creates a new GdkImage with a depth of 1 from the given data.

THIS FUNCTION IS INCREDIBLY BROKEN. The passed-in data must be allocated by malloc() (NOT g_malloc()) and will be freed when the image is freed.

Parameters

visual

the GdkVisual to use for the image.

 

data

the pixel data.

 

width

the width of the image in pixels.

 

height

the height of the image in pixels.

 

Returns

a new GdkImage.


gdk_image_get ()

GdkImage *
gdk_image_get (GdkDrawable *drawable,
               gint x,
               gint y,
               gint width,
               gint height);

gdk_image_get is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

This is a deprecated wrapper for gdk_drawable_get_image(); gdk_drawable_get_image() should be used instead. Or even better: in most cases gdk_pixbuf_get_from_drawable() is the most convenient choice.

Parameters

drawable

a GdkDrawable

 

x

x coordinate in window

 

y

y coordinate in window

 

width

width of area in window

 

height

height of area in window

 

Returns

a new GdkImage or NULL


gdk_image_ref ()

GdkImage *
gdk_image_ref (GdkImage *image);

gdk_image_ref has been deprecated since version 2.0 and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use g_object_ref() instead.

Deprecated function; use g_object_ref() instead.

Parameters

image

a GdkImage

 

Returns

the image


gdk_image_unref ()

void
gdk_image_unref (GdkImage *image);

gdk_image_unref has been deprecated since version 2.0 and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use g_object_unref() instead.

Deprecated function; use g_object_unref() instead.

Parameters

image

a GdkImage

 

gdk_image_get_colormap ()

GdkColormap *
gdk_image_get_colormap (GdkImage *image);

gdk_image_get_colormap has been deprecated since version 2.22 and should not be used in newly-written code.

GdkImage should not be used anymore.

Retrieves the colormap for a given image, if it exists. An image will have a colormap if the drawable from which it was created has a colormap, or if a colormap was set explicitely with gdk_image_set_colormap().

Parameters

image

a GdkImage

 

Returns

colormap for the image


gdk_image_set_colormap ()

void
gdk_image_set_colormap (GdkImage *image,
                        GdkColormap *colormap);

gdk_image_set_colormap has been deprecated since version 2.22 and should not be used in newly-written code.

GdkImage should not be used anymore.

Sets the colormap for the image to the given colormap. Normally there's no need to use this function, images are created with the correct colormap if you get the image from a drawable. If you create the image from scratch, use the colormap of the drawable you intend to render the image to.

Parameters

image

a GdkImage

 

colormap

a GdkColormap

Types and Values

GdkImage

typedef struct {
  GObject parent_instance;

  
  GdkImageType GSEAL (type); /* read only. */
  GdkVisual    *GSEAL (visual);	    /* read only. visual used to create the image */
  GdkByteOrder GSEAL (byte_order); /* read only. */
  gint		GSEAL (width);  /* read only. */
  gint		GSEAL (height); /* read only. */
  guint16 GSEAL (depth);  /* read only. */
  guint16 GSEAL (bpp);    /* read only. bytes per pixel */
  guint16 GSEAL (bpl);    /* read only. bytes per line */
  guint16       GSEAL (bits_per_pixel); /* read only. bits per pixel */
  gpointer GSEAL (mem);

  GdkColormap  *GSEAL (colormap); /* read only. */
} GdkImage;

The GdkImage struct contains information on the image and the pixel data.

Members


enum GdkImageType

Specifies the type of a GdkImage.

Members

GDK_IMAGE_NORMAL

The original X image type, which is quite slow since the image has to be transferred from the client to the server to display it.

 

GDK_IMAGE_SHARED

A faster image type, which uses shared memory to transfer the image data between client and server. However this will only be available if client and server are on the same machine and the shared memory extension is supported by the server.

 

GDK_IMAGE_FASTEST

Specifies that GDK_IMAGE_SHARED should be tried first, and if that fails then GDK_IMAGE_NORMAL will be used.

 

gdk_image_destroy

#define gdk_image_destroy              g_object_unref

gdk_image_destroy is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Destroys a GdkImage, freeing any resources allocated for it.

Bitmaps and Pixmaps

Graphics which are stored on the X Windows server. Since these are stored on the server they can be drawn very quickly, and all of the Drawing Primitives can be used to draw on them. Their main disadvantage is that manipulating individual pixels can be very slow.

GdkRGB

Built on top of GdkImage, this provides much more functionality, including the dithering of colors to produce better output on low-color displays.
