Window routines to manage on-screen windows¶
Window(title : string, size : iterable[, position=None[, flags=None]])¶
The Window class represents a visible on-screen object with an optional border and title text. It represents an area on the screen that can be accessed by the application for displaying graphics and receive and process user input.
The position to show the Window at is undefined by default, letting the operating system or window manager pick the best location. The behaviour can be adjusted through the
Window.DEFAULTPOS = (10, 10)
The created Window is hidden by default, which can be overridden at the time of creation by providing other SDL window flags through the flags parameter. The default flags for creating Window instances can be adjusted through the
Window.DEFAULTFLAGS = sdl2.SDL_WINDOW_SHOWN
create() → None¶

open() → None¶
Creates and shows the window.
close() → None¶
Closes the window, implicitly destroying the underlying SDL2 window.
refresh() → None¶
Refreshes the entire
This only needs to be called, if a SDL_Surface was acquired via
get_surface()and is used to display contents.
