|gtk.gdk.IMAGE_SHARED||A faster image type, which uses shared memory to transfer the image data between client and server. However this will only be available if client and server are on the same machine and the shared memory extension is supported by the server.|
|gtk.gdk.IMAGE_FASTEST||Specifies that gtk.gdk.IMAGE_SHARED should be tried first, and if that fails then gtk.gdk.IMAGE_NORMAL will be used.|
The Input Condition constants are a set of bit-flags that specify conditions for which an input callback will be triggered. The three members of this enumeration correspond to the readfds, writefds, and exceptfds arguments to the select system call.
|gtk.gdk.INPUT_READ||The file descriptor has become available for reading. (Or, as is standard in Unix, a socket or pipe was closed at the other end; this is the case if a subsequent read on the file descriptor returns a count of zero.)|

The Window Hints constants specify the fields of a GdkGeometry struct should be paid attention to. Also, the presence/absence of gtk.gdk.HINT_POS, gtk.gdk.HINT_USER_POS, and gtk.gdk.HINT_USER_SIZE is significant, though they don't directly refer to GdkGeometry fields. gtk.gdk.HINT_USER_POS will be set automatically by gtk.Window if you call the gtk.Window.move() method. gtk.gdk.HINT_USER_POS and gtk.gdk.HINT_USER_SIZE should be set if the user specified a size/position using a --geometry command-line argument; the gtk.Window.parse_geometry() method automatically sets these flags. These constants aren't useful in PyGTK.
