Class

Gtk.WidgetPaintable

Description [src]

final class Gtk.WidgetPaintable : GObject.Object {
  /* No available fields */
}

GtkWidgetPaintable is a GdkPaintable that displays the contents of a widget.

GtkWidgetPaintable will also take care of the widget not being in a state where it can be drawn (like when it isn’t shown) and just draw nothing or where it does not have a size (like when it is hidden) and report no size in that case.

Of course, GtkWidgetPaintable allows you to monitor widgets for size changes by emitting the GdkPaintable::invalidate-size signal whenever the size of the widget changes as well as for visual changes by emitting the GdkPaintable::invalidate-contents signal whenever the widget changes.

You can use a GtkWidgetPaintable everywhere a GdkPaintable is allowed, including using it on a GtkPicture (or one of its parents) that it was set on itself via gtk_picture_set_paintable(). The paintable will take care of recursion when this happens. If you do this however, ensure that the GtkPicture:can-shrink property is set to TRUE or you might end up with an infinitely growing widget.
