Good, convenient.

Hmm. Would be easier if you were using GdkPixbuf/GtkImage from GTK 2.
Then you could just check the value of the alpha channel at the
clicked pixel.

With GTK 1.2, you will need to gdk_image_get_from_drawable() the mask
for the pixmap, then gdk_image_get_pixel() the pixel at the place
where the user clicked.

hmm, i'm now using gtk2, i have a pixmap that i rendered into an
eventbox as a GtkImage. I then render each button from a pixbuf onto
certain portions of the GtkImage to create the buttons. ATM, when i get
a click or release event i use gdk_window_get_pointer and test to see if
the pointer is in the button area. This creates a problem if the button
is irregular in shape.

But because my buttons are still in a pixbuf, i could test the alpha
channel of the original using the pointer location returned from the
gdk_window_get_pointer call (accounting for the offset of course). 

Is there a better way to do this?

You only need to get_from_drawable() a 1x1 area where the user
clicked, so should be pretty fast. Don't get the whole bitmap.
