public class SymbolicColor

GtkSymbolicColor is a boxed type that represents a symbolic color.

It is the result of parsing a color expression. To obtain the color represented by a GtkSymbolicColor, it has to be resolved with resolve, which replaces all symbolic color references by the colors they refer to (in a given context) and evaluates mix, shade and other expressions, resulting in a RGBA value.

It is not normally necessary to deal directly with SymbolicColors, since they are mostly used behind the scenes by StyleContext and CssProvider .

SymbolicColor is deprecated. Symbolic colors are considered an implementation detail of GTK+.
