I am writting a Qt style that uses GTK+ to render its stuff; the inverse of
gtk-qt-engine , and so I need to re-use the Qt Display connection. Would
it be possible to add a function with the following signature to Gdk X11?
GdkDisplay *gdk_x11_foreign_new_xdisplay (Display *)
I have made this patch for mine 2.8.18:
Just copied the bulk of gdk_display_open() to a function that creates a
GdkDisplay from a X Display, which is then be used by gdk_display_open() and
a new gdk_x11_foreign_new_xdisplay(). Also, added an is_foreign flag to
GdkDisplayX11, so that gdk_display_close() doesn't get called on dispose.
Btw, could the GtkStyle painting methods signature be changed so they take a
generic GdkDrawable rather than a GdkWindow? Because I don't see a reason for
why engines would need a GdkWindow and passing a GdkPixmap is sometimes
useful. I understand if it breaks stuff, but at least document that a
GdkPixmap is also acceptable.
You can't start worrying about what's going to happen. You get spastic
enough worrying about what's happening now.
