This function is not useful in the context of CSS-based rendering. If you wish to change the way a widget renders its background you should use a custom CSS style, through an application-specific GtkStyleProvider and a CSS style class. You can also override the default drawing of a widget through the GtkWidget::draw signal, and use Cairo to draw a specific color, regardless of the CSS style.



Type: GtkStateFlags

Type: GdkRGBA

The color to assign, or NULL to undo the effect of previous calls to gtk_widget_override_background_color()

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