### Enumeration

# GskTransformCategory

#### Description [src]

The categories of matrices relevant for GSK and GTK.

Note that any category includes matrices of all later categories.
So if you want to for example check if a matrix is a 2D matrix,
`category >= GSK_TRANSFORM_CATEGORY_2D`

is the way to do this.

Also keep in mind that rounding errors may cause matrices to not
conform to their categories. Otherwise, matrix operations done via
multiplication will not worsen categories. So for the matrix
multiplication `C = A * B`

, `category(C) = MIN (category(A), category(B))`

.

#### Members

Name | Description |
---|---|

`GSK_TRANSFORM_CATEGORY_UNKNOWN` |
The category of the matrix has not been determined. |

`GSK_TRANSFORM_CATEGORY_ANY` |
Analyzing the matrix concluded that it does not fit in any other category. |

`GSK_TRANSFORM_CATEGORY_3D` |
The matrix is a 3D matrix. This means that the w column (the last column) has the values (0, 0, 0, 1). |

`GSK_TRANSFORM_CATEGORY_2D` |
The matrix is a 2D matrix. This is equivalent
to |

`GSK_TRANSFORM_CATEGORY_2D_AFFINE` |
The matrix is a combination of 2D scale and 2D translation operations. In particular, this means that any rectangle can be transformed exactly using this matrix. |

`GSK_TRANSFORM_CATEGORY_2D_TRANSLATE` |
The matrix is a 2D translation. |

`GSK_TRANSFORM_CATEGORY_IDENTITY` |
The matrix is the identity matrix. |
