gdk_monitor_get_scale_factor (
  GdkMonitor* monitor

Description [src]

Gets the internal scale factor that maps from monitor coordinates to device pixels.

On traditional systems this is 1, but on very high density outputs it can be a higher value (often 2).

This can be used if you want to create pixel based data for a particular monitor, but most of the time you’re drawing to a surface where it is better to use gdk_surface_get_scale_factor() instead.

Return value

Type: int

The scale factor.
