Description

Pixmaps are offscreen drawables. They can be drawn upon with the standard drawing primitives, then copied to another drawable (such as a GdkWindow) with gdk_pixmap_draw(). The depth of a pixmap is the number of bits per pixels. Bitmaps are simply pixmaps with a depth of 1. (That is, they are monochrome bitmaps - each pixel can be either on or off).

Details

struct GdkPixmap

struct GdkPixmap;

An opaque structure representing an offscreen drawable. Pointers to structures of type GdkPixmap, GdkBitmap, and GdkWindow, can often be used interchangeably. The type GdkDrawable refers generically to any of these types.
