Description

Note

This object is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

gtk.gdk.Screen objects are the PyGTK representation of a physical screen. It is used throughout PyGTK to specify which screen the top level windows are to be displayed on. It is also used to query the screen specification and default settings such as the default colormap (the get_default_colormap() method), the screen width (the get_width() method), etc.

Note

a screen may consist of multiple monitors that are merged to form a large screen area.

Methods

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_default_colormap

    def get_default_colormap()

Returns :

the default gtk.gdk.Colormap.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_default_colormap() method returns the default gtk.gdk.Colormap for the screen.

gtk.gdk.Screen.set_default_colormap

    def set_default_colormap(colormap)

colormap :

a gtk.gdk.Colormap

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The set_default_colormap() method sets the gtk.gdk.Colormap specified by colormap as the default colormap for the screen.

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_system_colormap

    def get_system_colormap()

Returns :

the default colormap for the screen. Since: 2.2

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_system_colormap() method returns the system's default colormap for the screen

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_system_visual

    def get_system_visual()

Returns :

the system gtk.gdk.Visual

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_system_visual() method returns the system's default gtk.gdk.Visual for the screen. This is the visual for the root window of the display.

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_rgb_colormap

    def get_rgb_colormap()

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Colormap

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_rgb_colormap() method returns the preferred colormap for rendering image data on the screen. Not a very useful function; historically, GDK could only render RGB image data to one colormap and visual, but in the current version it can render to any colormap and visual. So there's no need to call this function.

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_rgb_visual

    def get_rgb_visual()

    def get_toplevel_windows()

Returns :

a list of the toplevel gtk.gdk.Window objects

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_toplevel_windows() method returns a list of all toplevel gtk.gdk.Window objects known to PyGTK on the screen. A toplevel window is a child of the root window (see the gtk.gdk.get_default_root_window() function).

    def get_monitor_at_point(x, y)

x :

an x coordinate in the virtual screen.

y :

a y coordinate in the virtual screen.

Returns :

the number of the monitor that the point (x,y) lies in, or a monitor close to (x,y) if the point is not in any monitor.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The get_monitor_at_point() method returns the number of the monitor in which the point (x,y) is located or the closest monitor if not in a monitor.

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_monitor_at_window

    def get_monitor_at_window(window)

window :

a gtk.gdk.Window

event :

the gtk.gdk.Event.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.2 and above.

The broadcast_client_message() method sends a message to all top level windows. On X11, sends an X ClientMessage event to all toplevel windows on the screen.

Toplevel windows are determined by checking for the WM_STATE property, as described in the Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual (ICCCM). If no windows are found with the WM_STATE property set, the message is sent to all children of the root window.

On Windows, broadcasts a message registered with the name GDK_WIN32_CLIENT_MESSAGE to all top-level windows. The amount of data is limited to one long, i.e. four bytes.

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_setting

    def get_setting(name)

name :

the name of the setting

Returns :

the value of setting

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_rgba_colormap

    def get_rgba_colormap()

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Colormap for use with windows with an alpha channel or None if the capability is not available.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.

The get_rgba_colormap() method returns a colormap to use for creating windows or pixmaps with an alpha channel. The windowing system on which PyGTK is running may not support this capability, in which case None will be returned. Even if a non-None value is returned, it's possible that the window's alpha channel won't be honored when displaying the window on the screen: in particular, for X an appropriate windowing manager and compositing manager must be running to provide appropriate display.

gtk.gdk.Screen.get_rgba_visual

    def get_rgba_visual()

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Visual to use for windows with an alpha channel or None if the capability is not available.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.10 and above.
