RasterSource

The raster source provides the ability to supply arbitrary pixel data whilst rendering. The pixels are queried at the time of rasterisation by means of user callback functions, allowing for the ultimate flexibility. For example, in handling compressed image sources, you may keep a MRU cache of decompressed images and decompress sources on the fly and discard old ones to conserve memory.

For the raster source to be effective, you must at least specify the acquire and release callbacks which are used to retrieve the pixel data for the region of interest and demark when it can be freed afterwards. Other callbacks are provided for when the pattern is copied temporarily during rasterisation, or more permanently as a snapshot in order to keep the pixel data available for printing.

setAcquire
void setAcquire(cairo_raster_source_acquire_func_t acquire, cairo_raster_source_release_func_t release)

Specifies the callbacks used to generate the image surface for a rendering operation (acquire) and the function used to cleanup that surface afterwards. The acquire callback should create a surface (preferably an image surface created to match the target using Surface.createSimilarImage) that defines at least the region of interest specified by extents. The surface is allowed to be the entire sample area, but if it does contain a subsection of the sample area, the surface extents should be provided by setting the device offset (along with its width and height) using Surface.setDeviceOffset.

Updates the user data that is provided to all callbacks. Since 1.12

setCopy
void setCopy(cairo_raster_source_copy_func_t copy)

Updates the copy callback which is used whenever a temporary copy of the pattern is taken. Since 1.12

setFinish
void setFinish(cairo_raster_source_finish_func_t finish)

Updates the finish callback which is used whenever a pattern (or a copy thereof) will no longer be used. Since 1.12

setSnapshot
void setSnapshot(cairo_raster_source_snapshot_func_t snapshot)

Sets the callback that will be used whenever a snapshot is taken of the pattern, that is whenever the current contents of the pattern should be preserved for later use. This is typically invoked whilst printing. Since 1.12

addColorStopRgb
void addColorStopRgb(double offset, double red, double green, double blue)

Adds an opaque color stop to a gradient pattern. The offset specifies the location along the gradient's control vector. For example, a linear gradient's control vector is from (x0,y0) to (x1,y1) while a radial gradient's control vector is from any point on the start circle to the corresponding point on the end circle. The color is specified in the same way as in cairo_set_source_rgb(). If two (or more) stops are specified with identical offset values, they will be sorted according to the order in which the stops are added, (stops added earlier will compare less than stops added later). This can be useful for reliably making sharp color transitions instead of the typical blend. Note: If the pattern is not a gradient pattern, (eg. a linear or radial pattern), then the pattern will be put into an error status with a status of CAIRO_STATUS_PATTERN_TYPE_MISMATCH. Since 1.0

addColorStopRgba
void addColorStopRgba(double offset, double red, double green, double blue, double alpha)

Adds a translucent color stop to a gradient pattern. The offset specifies the location along the gradient's control vector. For example, a linear gradient's control vector is from (x0,y0) to (x1,y1) while a radial gradient's control vector is from any point on the start circle to the corresponding point on the end circle. The color is specified in the same way as in cairo_set_source_rgba(). If two (or more) stops are specified with identical offset values, they will be sorted according to the order in which the stops are added, (stops added earlier will compare less than stops added later). This can be useful for reliably making sharp color transitions instead of the typical blend. Note: If the pattern is not a gradient pattern, (eg. a linear or radial pattern), then the pattern will be put into an error status with a status of CAIRO_STATUS_PATTERN_TYPE_MISMATCH. Since 1.0

getColorStopCount
cairo_status_t getColorStopCount(out int count)

Gets the number of color stops specified in the given gradient pattern. Since 1.4

getColorStopRgba
cairo_status_t getColorStopRgba(int index, out double offset, out double red, out double green, out double blue, out double alpha)

createRgb
Pattern createRgb(double red, double green, double blue)

Creates a new cairo_pattern_t corresponding to an opaque color. The color components are floating point numbers in the range 0 to 1. If the values passed in are outside that range, they will be clamped. Since 1.0

createRgba
Pattern createRgba(double red, double green, double blue, double alpha)

Creates a new cairo_pattern_t corresponding to a translucent color. The color components are floating point numbers in the range 0 to 1. If the values passed in are outside that range, they will be clamped. Since 1.0

Gets the solid color for a solid color pattern. Since 1.4

createForSurface
Pattern createForSurface(Surface surface)

Create a new cairo_pattern_t for the given surface. Since 1.0

getSurface
cairo_status_t getSurface(out Surface surface)

Gets the surface of a surface pattern. The reference returned in surface is owned by the pattern; the caller should call Surface.reference if the surface is to be retained. Since 1.4

createLinear
Pattern createLinear(double x0, double y0, double x1, double y1)

Create a new linear gradient cairo_pattern_t along the line defined by (x0, y0) and (x1, y1). Before using the gradient pattern, a number of color stops should be defined using Pattern.addColorStopRgb or Pattern.addColorStopRgba. Note: The coordinates here are in pattern space. For a new pattern, pattern space is identical to user space, but the relationship between the spaces can be changed with Pattern.setMatrix. Since 1.0

Creates a new radial gradient cairo_pattern_t between the two circles defined by (cx0, cy0, radius0) and (cx1, cy1, radius1). Before using the gradient pattern, a number of color stops should be defined using Pattern.addColorStopRgb or Pattern.addColorStopRgba. Note: The coordinates here are in pattern space. For a new pattern, pattern space is identical to user space, but the relationship between the spaces can be changed with Pattern.setMatrix. Since 1.0

reference

destroy
void destroy()

Decreases the reference count on pattern by one. If the result is zero, then pattern and all associated resources are freed. See Pattern.reference. Since 1.0

status
cairo_status_t status()

Checks whether an error has previously occurred for this pattern. Since 1.0

setExtend
void setExtend(cairo_extend_t extend)

getExtend
cairo_extend_t getExtend()

Gets the current extend mode for a pattern. See cairo_extend_t for details on the semantics of each extend strategy. Since 1.0

setFilter
void setFilter(cairo_filter_t filter)

Sets the filter to be used for resizing when using this pattern. See cairo_filter_t for details on each filter. * Note that you might want to control filtering even when you do not have an explicit cairo_pattern_t object, (for example when using cairo_set_source_surface()). In these cases, it is convenient to use cairo_get_source() to get access to the pattern that cairo Since 1.0

getFilter
cairo_filter_t getFilter()

Gets the current filter for a pattern. See cairo_filter_t for details on each filter. Since 1.0

setMatrix
void setMatrix(Matrix matrix)

Sets the pattern's transformation matrix to matrix. This matrix is a transformation from user space to pattern space. When a pattern is first created it always has the identity matrix for its transformation matrix, which means that pattern space is initially identical to user space. Important: Please note that the direction of this transformation matrix is from user space to pattern space. This means that if you imagine the flow from a pattern to user space (and on to device space), then coordinates in that flow will be transformed by the inverse of the pattern matrix. For example, if you want to make a pattern appear twice as large as Since 1.0

getMatrix
void getMatrix(Matrix matrix)

Stores the pattern's transformation matrix into matrix. Since 1.0

getUserData
void* getUserData(cairo_user_data_key_t* key)
