Re: Splash screen border


Splash Window is a regular window. In X terms it translates to a window
which has "override_redirect" attribute set to 1, so window managers don't
put an ornament around it.

Gtk Windows are not really your regular windows, they are far more complicated,
and usually consist of few X Windows.

Thanks for this code but the created window is a standard window
so what is the interest?

I'm a newbie with GTK
So i try to create a splashscreen white background with a thin border
(1 pixel)

It's Ok for the background but i don't know how to do for the thin

See my code:

It's missing a the most important line:

 gtk_window_set_type_hint (GTK_WINDOW (window),

Use that and the code should be as simple as:

GtkWidget *
make_a_splashscreen_to_annoy_the_user (void)
 GtkWidget *window;
 GtkWidget *image;

 window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
 gtk_window_set_type_hint (GTK_WINDOW (window),

 image = gtk_image_new_from_file (PATH_TO_YOUR_PROPERLY_SIZED_IMAGE);
 gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (window), image);
 gtk_widget_show (image);

 return window;
