Class

GioThemedIcon

Description [src]

final class Gio.ThemedIcon : GObject.Object {
  /* No available fields */
}

GThemedIcon is an implementation of GIcon that supports icon themes. GThemedIcon contains a list of all of the icons present in an icon theme, so that icons can be looked up quickly. GThemedIcon does not provide actual pixmaps for icons, just the icon names. Ideally something like gtk_icon_theme_choose_icon() should be used to resolve the list of names so that fallback icons work nicely with themes that inherit other themes.

Methods inherited from GObject (43)
Methods inherited from GIcon (3)
g_icon_equal

Checks if two icons are equal.

g_icon_serialize

Serializes a GIcon into a GVariant. An equivalent GIcon can be retrieved back by calling g_icon_deserialize() on the returned value. As serialization will avoid using raw icon data when possible, it only makes sense to transfer the GVariant between processes on the same machine, (as opposed to over the network), and within the same file system namespace.

Available since: 2.38

g_icon_to_string

Generates a textual representation of icon that can be used for serialization such as when passing icon to a different process or saving it to persistent storage. Use g_icon_new_for_string() to get icon back from the returned string.

Available since: 2.20

Properties

The icon name.

Gio.ThemedIcon:names

Gio.ThemedIcon:use-default-fallbacks

Whether to use the default fallbacks found by shortening the icon name at ‘-‘ characters. If the “names” array has more than one element, ignores any past the first.
