Description

A gtk.gdk.Colormap contains a table mapping index values to the RGB color component values used to display the colors. The index value corresponds to the pixel value of a gtk.gdk.Color object and the RGB component values correspond to the gtk.gdk.Color red, green and blue values. The gtk.Widget.get_colormap() method is used to retrieve the colormap used by a widget. The default system colormap is retrieved by using the gtk.gdk.colormap_get_system() function. The alloc_color() method has three signatures to allow the color specification using an unallocated gtk.gdk.Color, a string or a RGB trio.

Constructor

    gtk.gdk.Colormap(visual, allocate)

visual :

the gtk.gdk.Visual to use

allocate :

if True, the newly created colormap will be a private colormap, and all colors in it will be allocated for the applications use.

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Colormap object

Creates a new gtk.gdk.Colormap for the gtk.gdk.Visual specified by visual. If allocate is True the colormap will be a private colormap for the sole use of the application.

Methods

gtk.gdk.Colormap.alloc_color

    def alloc_color(color, writeable=False, best_match=True)

color :

an unallocated gtk.gdk.Color

writeable :

if True the colormap entry is writeable.

best_match :

if True a best match to the requested color can be used if needed.

Returns :

a new gtk.gdk.Color object

The alloc_color() method allocates the color specified by color in the colormap. The value of color should be an unallocated gtk.gdk.Color. If writeable is True the color is allocated writeable which means it can be changed after allocation but cannot be shared with another application. If best_match is True the closest match to the color will be returned if the request could not be satisfied exactly.

This method raises:

  • the ValueError (TypeError prior to PyGTK 2.4) exception if unable to parse the color specification
  • the RuntimeError exception if the color could not be allocated

gtk.gdk.Colormap.alloc_color

    def alloc_color(spec, writeable=False, best_match=True)

spec :

a string containing a color specification

writeable :

if True the colormap entry is writeable.

best_match :

if True a best match to the requested color can be used if needed.

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Color object

The alloc_color() method allocates the color specified by spec in the colormap. The format of spec is a string containing the specification of the color either as a name (e.g. "navajowhite") as specified in the X11 rgb.txt file or as a hexadecimal string (e.g. "#FF0078"). The hexadecimal string must start with '#' and must contain 3 sets of hexadecimal digits of the same length (i.e. 1, 2 ,3 or 4 digits). For example the following specify the same color value: "#F0A", "#FF00AA", "#FFF000AAA" and "#FFFF0000AAAA". If writeable is True the color is allocated writeable which means it can be changed after allocation but cannot be shared with another application. If best_match is True the closest match to the color will be returned if the request could not be satisfied exactly.

This method raises:

  • the ValueError (TypeError prior to PyGTK 2.4) exception if unable to parse the color specification
  • the RuntimeError exception if the color could not be allocated

gtk.gdk.Colormap.alloc_color

    def alloc_color(red, green, blue, writeable=False, best_match=True)

red :

the red component of the color in the range 0-65535

green :

the green component of the color in the range 0-65535

blue :

the blue component of the color in the range 0-65535

writeable :

a gboolean

best_match :

a gboolean

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Color object

The alloc_color() method allocates the color specified by the component values red, green and blue. If writeable is True the color is allocated writeable which means it can be changed after allocation but cannot be shared with another application. If best_match is True the closest match to the color will be returned if the request could not be satisfied exactly.

This method raises:

  • the ValueError (TypeError prior to PyGTK 2.4) exception if unable to parse the color specification
  • the RuntimeError exception if the color could not be allocated

gtk.gdk.Colormap.get_visual

    def get_visual()

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Visual

The get_visual() method returns the visual the colormap was created for. See the gtk.gdk.Colormap constructor.

gtk.gdk.Colormap.get_screen

    def get_screen()

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Screen

The get_screen() method returns the gtk.gdk.Screen the colormap was created for.

gtk.gdk.Colormap.query_color

    def query_color()

pixel :

a pixel value

Returns :

the gtk.gdk.Color corresponding to pixel

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The query_color() method returns the gtk.gdk.Color corresponding to the hardware pixel value specified by pixel. pixel must be a valid pixel in the colormap. It's a programmer error to call this method with a pixel which is not in the colormap. Hardware pixels are normally obtained from the alloc_color() method, or from a gtk.gdk.Image object. (A gtk.gdk.Image contains image data in hardware format while a gtk.gdk.Pixbuf contains image data in a canonical 24-bit RGB format.)

Functions

gtk.gdk.colormap_get_system

    def gtk.gdk.colormap_get_system()

Returns :

the system' default colormap

The gtk.gdk.colormap_get_system() method returns the default colormap used by the system on the default screen. See the gtk.gdk.Screen.get_system_colormap() method for more information.
