Re: Background image for a window

I want to put an image in the background of a window with text labels over it.
In Gtk1 i used:
$window_style->bg_pixmap('normal', $pixmap);
$window->window->set_back_pixmap($pixmap, 0);

but this fails in GTK2
(error message:"Usage: Gtk2::Style::bg_pixmap(style, state)")

Is there a better/proper way to do this?

setting the pixmap in the style (with the duplicate style and attach and all that) should be sufficient; but, as you see, we have that bound only as an accessor, not as a mutator. attached is a patch that would make that work.

just setting the backing pixmap on the gdk window will not really be enough, because the widget style will paint right over top of it.

I think it worked on the Wiley Coyote model of project management - if
at any point you looked down and realised what you were doing was
impossible then you'd instantly fail.
