Declaration [src]

gdk_pixbuf_new_from_resource_at_scale (
  const char* resource_path,
  int width,
  int height,
  gboolean preserve_aspect_ratio,
  GError** error

Description [src]

Creates a new pixbuf by loading an image from an resource.

The file format is detected automatically. If NULL is returned, then error will be set.

The image will be scaled to fit in the requested size, optionally preserving the image’s aspect ratio. When preserving the aspect ratio, a width of -1 will cause the image to be scaled to the exact given height, and a height of -1 will cause the image to be scaled to the exact given width. When not preserving aspect ratio, a width or height of -1 means to not scale the image at all in that dimension.

The stream is not closed.

Type: const char*

The path of the resource file.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.

Type: int

The width the image should have or -1 to not constrain the width.


Type: int

The height the image should have or -1 to not constrain the height.


Type: gboolean

TRUE to preserve the image’s aspect ratio.


Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will be left initialized to NULL by the constructor if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: GdkPixbuf

A newly-created pixbuf.

The caller of the function takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
The return value can be NULL.
