gdk_paintable_get_intrinsic_aspect_ratio (
  GdkPaintable* paintable

Description [src]

Gets the preferred aspect ratio the paintable would like to be displayed at.

The aspect ratio is the width divided by the height, so a value of 0.5 means that the paintable prefers to be displayed twice as high as it is wide. Consumers of this interface can use this to preserve aspect ratio when displaying the paintable.

This is a purely informational value and does not in any way limit the values that may be passed to gdk_paintable_snapshot().

Usually when a paintable returns nonzero values from gdk_paintable_get_intrinsic_width() and gdk_paintable_get_intrinsic_height() the aspect ratio should conform to those values, though that is not required.

If the paintable does not have a preferred aspect ratio, it returns 0. Negative values are never returned.

Return value

Type: double

The intrinsic aspect ratio of paintable or 0 if none.
