Requests the contents of the clipboard as image and converts the result to a gdk.Pixbuf This function waits for the data to be received using the main loop, so events, timeouts, etc, may be dispatched during the wait.

class Clipboard

Return Value

Type: Pixbuf

a newly-allocated gdk.Pixbuf object which must be disposed with g_object_unref(), or NULL if retrieving the selection data failed. (This could happen for various reasons, in particular if the clipboard was empty or if the contents of the clipboard could not be converted into an image.)
