Method

GdkSurfaceset_opaque_region

Declaration [src]

void
gdk_surface_set_opaque_region (
  GdkSurface* surface,
  cairo_region_t* region
)

Description [src]

Marks a region of the GdkSurface as opaque.

For optimisation purposes, compositing window managers may like to not draw obscured regions of surfaces, or turn off blending during for these regions. With RGB windows with no transparency, this is just the shape of the window, but with ARGB32 windows, the compositor does not know what regions of the window are transparent or not.

This function only works for toplevel surfaces.

GTK will update this property automatically if the surface background is opaque, as we know where the opaque regions are. If your surface background is not opaque, please update this property in your Gtk.Widget.css_changed handler.

Parameters

region

Type: cairo_region_t

A region, or NULL to make the entire surface opaque.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.
