pixmap(n) Tix Built-In Commands pixmap(n)
pixmap - image type for the XPM file format.
image create pixmap ?name? ?options?
XPM is a popular X Window image file format for storing color icons.
The pixmap image type defined by the Tix(n) library can be used to cre‐
ate color images using XPM files.
Like all images, pixmaps are created using the image create command.
Pixmaps support the following options:
Specifies the contents of the source pixmap as a string. The
string must adhere to the XPM file format (e.g., as generated by
the pixmap(1) program). If both the -data and -file options are
specified, the -data option takes precedence. Please note that
the XPM file parsing code in the xpm library is extremely frag‐
ile. The first line of the string must be "/* XPM */" or other‐
wise a segmatation fault will be caused.
name gives the name of a file whose contents define the source
pixmap. The file must adhere to the XPM file format (e.g., as
generated by the pixmap(1) program).
When a pixmap image is created, Tk also creates a new command whose
name is the same as the image. This command may be used to invoke var‐
ious operations on the image. It has the following general form:
imageName option ?arg arg ...?
Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The
following commands are possible for pixmap images:
imageName cget option
Returns the current value of the configuration option given by
option. Option may have any of the values accepted by the image
create pixmap command.
imageName configure ?option? ?value option value ...?
Query or modify the configuration options for the image. If no
option is specified, returns a list describing all of the avail‐
able options for imageName (see Tk_ConfigureInfo for information
on the format of this list). If option is specified with no
value, then the command returns a list describing the one named
option (this list will be identical to the corresponding sublist
of the value returned if no option is specified). If one or
more option-value pairs are specified, then the command modifies
the given option(s) to have the given value(s); in this case the
command returns an empty string. Option may have any of the
values accepted by the image create pixmap command.
