pixmap

Arguments: object

Returns (or sets with setf) the pixmap that will be displayed for a picture-button or static-picture control or for an individual button of a multi-picture-button.

pixmap is also used by Inspect dialogs window to provide visual identifiers of objects. In the IDE, the inspector uses the pixmap returned by this generic function to point out objects of various types in its drop-down history list. The inspector may be customized to show additional pixmaps for other types of objects by defining pixmap methods. For example, the following method would cause the radio-button pixmap to be displayed thereafter in the inspector's history list for any symbol in the list.

(defmethod pixmap ((object symbol))
  (find-pixmap 'radio-button))

pixmap is a property of the button-info, picture-button, and static-picture classes.
