Class

GdkSurface

Description [src]

abstract class Gdk.Surface : GObject.Object {
  /* No available fields */
}

A GdkSurface is a rectangular region on the screen.

It’s a low-level object, used to implement high-level objects such as Gtk.Window or Gtk.Dialog in GTK.

The surfaces you see in practice are either GdkToplevel or GdkPopup, and those interfaces provide much of the required API to interact with these surfaces. Other, more specialized surface types exist, but you will rarely interact with them directly.
