GdkRectangle

Description [src]

struct GdkRectangle {
  int x;
  int y;
  int width;
  int height;
}

A GdkRectangle data type for representing rectangles.

GdkRectangle is identical to cairo_rectangle_t. Together with Cairo‚Äôs cairo_region_t data type, these are the central types for representing sets of pixels.

The intersection of two rectangles can be computed with gdk_rectangle_intersect(); to find the union of two rectangles use gdk_rectangle_union().

The cairo_region_t type provided by Cairo is usually used for managing non-rectangular clipping of graphical operations.

The Graphene library has a number of other data types for regions and volumes in 2D and 3D.

Structure members
