Description

Some useful canvas utility functions.

The GnomeCanvasPoints structure manages an array of points (X and Y coordinates) and is used by GnomeCanvasLine and GnomeCanvasPolygon canvas items.

To create a GnomeCanvasPoints structure call gnome_canvas_points_new() and when finished using it call gnome_canvas_points_free().

Of note is that the GnomeCanvasPoints structure is actually managed by a reference count, so it won't be freed until this count reaches 0. To increment its reference count call gnome_canvas_points_ref() and to decrement it call gnome_canvas_points_unref().

Details

struct GnomeCanvasPoints

struct GnomeCanvasPoints;

A structure to manage an array of points (X and Y coordinates). The memory management of this structure is handled with functions below, but the point coordinates are meant to be written directly into the array pointed to by the coords field.


gnome_canvas_points_new ()

GnomeCanvasPoints * gnome_canvas_points_new             (int num_points);

Creates a structure that should be used to pass an array of points to items.

num_points :

The number of points to allocate space for in the array.

Returns :

A newly-created array of points. It should be filled in by the user.

gnome_canvas_points_ref ()

GnomeCanvasPoints * gnome_canvas_points_ref             (GnomeCanvasPoints *points);

Increases the reference count of the specified points structure.

points :

A canvas points structure.

Returns :

The canvas points structure itself.

gnome_canvas_points_unref

#define             gnome_canvas_points_unref

A synonym for gnome_canvas_points_free(). It decrements a GnomeCanvasPoints reference by 1 and frees it when there are no more references.


gnome_canvas_points_free ()

void                gnome_canvas_points_free            (GnomeCanvasPoints *points);

Decreases the reference count of the specified points structure. If it reaches zero, then the structure is freed.

points :

A canvas points structure.
