): gtk.IconSet(pixbuf=None)
def copy()
def render_icon(style, direction, state, size, widget, detail)
def add_source(source)
def get_sizes()

Description

A gtk.IconSet contains a set of variants for a single icon. The variants provide icons of different sizes and for different widget states. The variants can be added with the add_source() method.

Constructor

    gtk.IconSet(pixbuf=None)

pixbuf :

a gtk.gdk.Pixbuf

Returns :

a new gtk.IconSet

Creates a new gtk.IconSet with pixbuf as the default fallback source image. If pixbuf is None there is no default fallback source image. If you don't add any additional gtk.IconSources to the icon set, all variants of the icon will be created from pixbuf, using scaling, pixelation, etc. as required to adjust the icon size or make the icon look insensitive/prelighted.

Methods

gtk.IconSet.copy

    def copy()

Returns :

a new gtk.IconSet identical to the first.

The copy() method returns a copy of the icon set.

gtk.IconSet.render_icon

    def render_icon(style, direction, state, size, widget, detail)

style :

a gtk.Style associated with widget, or None

direction :

the text direction; one of: gtk.TEXT_DIR_NONE, gtk.TEXT_DIR_LTR, gtk.TEXT_DIR_RTL

state :

the widget state; one of: gtk.STATE_NORMAL, gtk.STATE_ACTIVE, gtk.STATE_PRELIGHT, gtk.STATE_SELECTED, gtk.STATE_INSENSITIVE

size :

the icon size; one of: gtk.ICON_SIZE_INVALID, gtk.ICON_SIZE_MENU, gtk.ICON_SIZE_SMALL_TOOLBAR, gtk.ICON_SIZE_LARGE_TOOLBAR, gtk.ICON_SIZE_BUTTON, gtk.ICON_SIZE_DND, gtk.ICON_SIZE_DIALOG

widget :

the widget that will display the icon, or None

detail :

the detail to pass to the theme engine, or None

Returns :

a gtk.gdk.Pixbuf to be displayed

The render_icon() method renders an icon using gtk.Style.render_icon(). In most cases, gtk.Widget.render_icon() is better, since it automatically provides most of the arguments from the current widget settings. This method never returns None; if the icon can't be rendered (perhaps because an image file fails to load), a default "missing image" icon will be returned instead.

gtk.IconSet.add_source

    def add_source(source)

source :

a gtk.IconSource

The add_source() method adds the gtk.IconSource specified by source to the icon set. Icon sets have a list of gtk.IconSource, which they use as base icons for rendering icons in different states and sizes. Icons are scaled, made to look insensitive, etc. in the render_icon() method, but gtk.IconSet needs base images to work with. The base images and when to use them are described by a gtk.IconSource.

An example of when you'd use this method: a web browser's "Back to Previous Page" icon might point in a different direction in Hebrew and in English; it might look different when insensitive; and it might change size depending on toolbar mode (small or large icons). So a single icon set would contain all those variants of the icon, and you might add a separate source for each one.

You should nearly always add a "default" icon source with all fields wildcarded, which will be used as a fallback if no more specific source matches. gtk.IconSet always prefers more specific icon sources to more generic icon sources. The order in which you add the sources to the icon set does not matter.

The gtk.IconSet() constructor creates a new icon set with a default icon source based on the given pixbuf.

gtk.IconSet.get_sizes

    def get_sizes()

Returns :

a tuple containing all the icon sizes supported by the icon set

The get_sizes() method returns a tuple containing all the icon sizes this icon set can render.
