Structure

CGDataProviderRef

An abstraction for data-reading tasks that eliminates the need to manage a raw memory buffer.

Declaration

typedef struct CGDataProvider CGDataProviderRef;

Overview

Some Core Graphics routines supply blocks of data to your program. Rather than reading through a raw memory buffer, data provider objects of type CGDataProviderRef allow you to supply Core Graphics functions with data.

CGDataProviderRef is derived from CFTypeRef and inherits the properties that all Core Foundation types have in common.
