Declaration [src]

gsk_renderer_realize (
  GskRenderer* renderer,
  GdkSurface* surface,
  GError** error

Description [src]

Creates the resources needed by the renderer to render the scene graph.

Since GTK 4.6, the surface may be NULL, which allows using renderers without having to create a surface. Since GTK 4.14, it is recommended to use gsk_renderer_realize_for_display() instead.

Note that it is mandatory to call gsk_renderer_unrealize() before destroying the renderer.



Type: GdkSurface

The GdkSurface renderer will be used on.

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

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will be left initialized to NULL by the method if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: gboolean

Whether the renderer was successfully realized.
