Declaration [src]

gtk_gl_area_set_auto_render (
  GtkGLArea* area,
  gboolean auto_render

Description [src]

Sets whether the GtkGLArea is in auto render mode.

If auto_render is TRUE the GtkGLArea::render signal will be emitted every time the widget draws. This is the default and is useful if drawing the widget is faster.

If auto_render is FALSE the data from previous rendering is kept around and will be used for drawing the widget the next time, unless the window is resized. In order to force a rendering gtk_gl_area_queue_render() must be called. This mode is useful when the scene changes seldom, but takes a long time to redraw.
