digitalmars.D.learn - gtkD load images

How can be use gtkD to load images, I assume through gdkpixbuf? 
While I am getting errors loading images through glade's image:

(test.exe:8188): Gtk-WARNING **: Could not load image 
'a.jpg': Couldn't recognize the image file format for file 
'test\a.jpg'

(loads fine in glade)

which needs to be resolved, I'd also like to be able to use 
gdkpixbuf to load images programmatically. There seems to be no 
demos on the gtkD github page that deals with image loading.

I've tried to do something like

import gtkc.gdkpixbuf;
auto x = c_gdk_pixbuf_get_formats().data;

but I don't know how to interpret x.

Also something like

		import gtkc.gdkpixbuf;
		void* x;
		auto p = c_gdk_pixbuf_get_formats();
		for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
		{			
			x = p.data;
			p = p.next;
		}

which doesn't offer any help.


Aside: How can we call the gtk functions directly using gtkD? 
Seems it uses stuff like

Linker.link(gdk_pixbuf_get_formats, "gdk_pixbuf_get_formats", 
LIBRARY_GDKPIXBUF);

It does seem to alias to these function but something is off and 
I'm not sure what.

hi - is the gtk.Image class not working for you? https://api.gtkd.org/gtkd/gtk/Image.html - there's also a gdkpixbuf.Pixbuf that you can use. https://api.gtkd.org/gtkd/gdkpixbuf/Pixbuf.html - you can import those functions from gdkpixbuf.c.functions.

no, they are not... I haven't tried though, but there seems to be a problem with the pixbuf not having loaders for any images. using a gtk Image widget does not load the image and complains about the image format. If I do something like import gdkpixbuf.Pixbuf; Pixbuf.newFromResource("C:\\a.jpg"); Unhandled exception: glib.GException.GException The resource at 'C:\a.jpg' does not exist at generated\gtkd\glib\GException.d(40) occurred which doesn't seem to make much sense. The resource exists where I say it is and not sure if this is related to the missing pixbuf loaders.

There are two issues here, you need to properly escape the slash: "C:\\\\a.jpg". And a.jpg is not a resource file, so you would use the Pixbuf constuctor to load an image file. ``` Pixbuf p = new Pixbuf(r"C:\\a.jpg"); ``` -- Mike Wey

Thanks. Why do I need 4 slashes? Is that standard with gtk because strings are interpreted twice or something? Seemed to work though.

Nothing specific to GTK but in D and other programing languages the \ is used as an escape character, so you can use special characters in your sting like `\n` for a newline. But this means you will need to use \\ to get an literal back slash. https://dlang.org/spec/lex.html#double_quoted_strings You can also use an wysiwyg string by using `r"` at the start so what you type is what you get. https://dlang.org/spec/lex.html#wysiwyg -- Mike Wey

I think you missed the point of the question. In the end, the path should contain only one backslash. But with `"C:\\\\a.jpg"` and `r"C:\\a.jpg"` you get two. Why do you need two? Does the library do another round of escape sequence handling?

That's me not being a Windows user shining trough, i somehow got it in my head that you needed two backslashes after the C:. But indeed just "C:\\a.jpg" or r"C:\a.jpg" will work as expected. -- Mike Wey

For x64 it simply crashes and no exception is given. If I use a dummy image I get the same error: "Unhandled exception: glib.GException.GException The resource at “C:\adf.jpg” does not exist at generated\gtkd\glib\GException.d(40)" The error message makes look like like it should be "Unhandled exception: glib.GException.GException The resource at “C:\adf.jpg” does not exist at “C:\” generated\gtkd\glib\GException.d(40)" I'd rather use Pixbuf than image because I don't need to generate a full blow image widget. If I do GError* err = null; auto p = gdk_pixbuf_new_from_resource(Str.toStringz("C:\\a.jpg"), &err); p is null and err is The resource at “D:\a.jpgâ€. does not exist. which is clearly not true. So not sure what is going on ;/ Seems to be a bug in pixbuf or am I specifying the path wrong? If gtk.Image uses these internally then it is working so...

Hi! I load images using Gtk like this (I use gtk under gnu/linux): Pixbuf pixbuf = new Pixbuf (filename); And draw them in a GtkDrawingArea like this: // redrawPage is a method from my window class // theCanvas = cast(DrawingArea) theBuilder.getObject("wCanvas"); // theCanvas.addOnDraw (&redrawPage); private bool redrawPage (Scoped!Context ctx, Widget wda) { if (pixbuf !is null) { Pixbuf img; int w, h; ctx.scale (drawingScale, drawingScale); w = cast(int) (pixbuf.getWidth * drawingScale); h = cast(int) (pixbuf.getHeight * drawingScale); theCanvas.setSizeRequest (w, h); ctx.setSourcePixbuf (cast(Pixbuf) thePixmap, 0.0, 0.0); ctx.paint (); } return true; } Hope it helps you.
