Gtk2::Gdk::Image

NAME

Gtk2::Gdk::Image − wrapper for GdkImage

DESCRIPTION

A "Gtk2::Gdk::Image" is a 2−D array of pixel values in client-side memory. It can optionally use shared memory with the X server for fast copying to or from a window or pixmap.

If you’re thinking of using this then look at "Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf" first. GdkPixbuf has many more features, in particular file read and write ( PNG, JPEG, etc). But a GdkImage lets you work directly in pixel values instead of expanding to RGB components.

See Gtk2::Gdk::Drawable for "draw_image", "get_image" and "copy_to_image" methods to draw or fetch images to or from a window or pixmap.

The various "get" methods are Gtk 2.22 style. For previous versions they’re direct field access.

METHODS

image or undef = Gtk2::Gdk::Image−>new ($type, $visual, $width, $height)

$type (Gtk2::Gdk::ImageType)

$visual (Gtk2::Gdk::Visual)

$width (integer)

$height (integer)

integer = $image−>get_bits_per_pixel
byteorder = $image−>get_byte_order
integer = $image−>get_bytes_per_line
integer = $image−>get_bytes_per_pixel
colormap = $image−>get_colormap
$image−>set_colormap ($colormap)

$colormap (Gtk2::Gdk::Colormap)

integer = $image−>get_depth
integer = $image−>get_height
imagetype = $image−>get_image_type
unsigned = $image−>get_pixel ($x, $y)

$x (integer)

$y (integer)

string = $image−>get_pixels()
Return a copy of the raw pixel data memory from $image. This is "bytes_per_line * height" many bytes.

$image−>put_pixel ($x, $y, $pixel)

$x (integer)

$y (integer)

$pixel (unsigned)

visual = $image−>get_visual
integer = $image−>get_width
