Declaration [src]

gdk_pixbuf_loader_get_pixbuf (
  GdkPixbufLoader* loader

Description [src]

Queries the GdkPixbuf that a pixbuf loader is currently creating.

In general it only makes sense to call this function after the GdkPixbufLoader::area-prepared signal has been emitted by the loader; this means that enough data has been read to know the size of the image that will be allocated.

If the loader has not received enough data via gdk_pixbuf_loader_write(), then this function returns NULL.

The returned pixbuf will be the same in all future calls to the loader, so if you want to keep using it, you should acquire a reference to it.

Additionally, if the loader is an animation, it will return the “static image” of the animation (see gdk_pixbuf_animation_get_static_image()).

Return value

Type: GdkPixbuf

The pixbuf that the loader is creating.

The returned data is owned by the instance.
The return value can be NULL.
