public class CssProvider : Object, StyleProvider

GtkCssProvider is an object implementing the StyleProvider interface.

It is able to parse CSS-like input in order to style widgets.

An application can make GTK parse a specific CSS style sheet by calling load_from_file or load_from_resource and adding the provider with add_provider or add_provider_for_display.

In addition, certain files will be read when GTK is initialized. First, the file `$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gtk-4.0/gtk.css` is loaded if it exists. Then, GTK loads the first existing file among `XDG_DATA_HOME/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk-VARIANT.css`, `$HOME/.themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk-VARIANT.css`, `$XDG_DATA_DIRS/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk-VARIANT.css` and `DATADIR/share/themes/THEME/gtk-VERSION/gtk-VARIANT.css`, where `THEME` is the name of the current theme (see the gtk_theme_name setting), VARIANT is the variant to load (see the gtk_application_prefer_dark_theme setting), `DATADIR` is the prefix configured when GTK was compiled (unless overridden by the `GTK_DATA_PREFIX` environment variable), and `VERSION` is the GTK version number. If no file is found for the current version, GTK tries older versions all the way back to 4.0.
