Declaration [src]

gtk_style_context_get_background_color (
  GtkStyleContext* context,
  GtkStateFlags state,
  GdkRGBA* color

Description [src]

Gets the background color for a given state.

This function is far less useful than it seems, and it should not be used in newly written code. CSS has no concept of “background color”, as a background can be an image, or a gradient, or any other pattern including solid colors.

The only reason why you would call gtk_style_context_get_background_color() is to use the returned value to draw the background with it; the correct way to achieve this result is to use gtk_render_background() instead, along with CSS style classes to modify the color to be rendered.

Available since: 3.0

Deprecated since: 3.16

Use gtk_render_background() instead.



Type: GtkStateFlags

State to retrieve the color for.


Type: GdkRGBA

Return value for the background color.

The argument will be set by the function.
The returned data is owned by the instance.
