GdkPixbufLoader* gdk_pixbuf_loader_new_with_mime_type ( const char* mime_type, GError** error )
Creates a new pixbuf loader object that always attempts to parse
image data as if it were an image of MIME type
mime_type, instead of
identifying the type automatically.
This function is useful if you want an error if the image isn’t the expected MIME type; for loading image formats that can’t be reliably identified by looking at the data; or if the user manually forces a specific MIME type.
The list of supported mime types depends on what image loaders
are installed, but typically “image/png”, “image/jpeg”, “image/gif”,
“image/tiff” and “image/x-xpixmap” are among the supported mime types.
To obtain the full list of supported mime types, call
gdk_pixbuf_format_get_mime_types() on each of the
structs returned by gdk_pixbuf_get_formats().
Available since: 2.4
The mime type to be loaded.
The data is owned by the caller of the function. The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
The return location for a recoverable error.
The argument can be
If the return location is not
NULL, then you must initialize it to a
The argument will be left initialized to
NULLby 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.
