Renders an icon previously looked up in an icon theme using IconTheme.lookupIcon; the size will be based on the size passed to IconTheme.lookupIcon. Note that the resulting pixbuf may not be exactly this size; an icon theme may have icons that differ slightly from their nominal sizes, and in addition GTK+ will avoid scaling icons that it considers sufficiently close to the requested size or for which the source image would have to be scaled up too far. (This maintains sharpness.). This behaviour can be changed by passing the GTK_ICON_LOOKUP_FORCE_SIZE flag when obtaining the gtk.IconInfo If this flag has been specified, the pixbuf returned by this function will be scaled to the exact size.

class IconInfo

Return Value

Type: Pixbuf

the rendered icon; this may be a newly created icon or a new reference to an internal icon, so you must not modify the icon. Use g_object_unref() to release your reference to the icon.


GException on failure.
