Re: How to create GdkPixmaps before windows

Thank you very much for your answer. Unfortunately, I've some troubles in
use of gdk_pixmap_new_from_xpm_d, as I have the xpm data stored in files.
    I don't have clear if the gchar** argument refers to the xpm file
content (with all the parenthesis, the header etc), as the API reference
seems to indicate... but it don't seem to work; and I don't think it's so,
reading the GTK tutorial... and, on the other hand, if so, why requesting a
gchar** and not a gchar*?
    If it's needed a 'structured' xpm array, I'm in trouble because I should
somehow get it from the file I have... is there a commodity function to do
this, or should I do it by hand?
    I think I'll check the gnome-libs sources, to have an answer. For now,
thank you very much and happy easter...
    Mano :)

| Use gdk_pixmap_colormap_create_from_xpm_d(), then you only need a
