To use XBM format, specify
xbm as the image type. This image format doesn’t require an external library, so images of this type are always supported.
Additional image properties supported for the
xbm image type are:
foreground, should be a string specifying the image foreground color, or
nil for the default color. This color is used for each pixel in the XBM that is 1. The default is the frame’s foreground color.
background, should be a string specifying the image background color, or
nil for the default color. This color is used for each pixel in the XBM that is 0. The default is the frame’s background color.
If you specify an XBM image using data within Emacs instead of an external file, use the following three properties:
data, specifies the contents of the image. There are three formats you can use for
A vector of strings or bool-vectors, each specifying one line of the image. Do specify
A string containing the same byte sequence as an XBM file would contain. You must not specify
:widthin this case, because omitting them is what indicates the data has the format of an XBM file. The file contents specify the height and width of the image.
A string or a bool-vector containing the bits of the image (plus perhaps some extra bits at the end that will not be used). It should contain at least
stride * height
strideis the smallest multiple of 8 greater than or equal to the width of the image. In this case, you should specify
:stride, both to indicate that the string contains just the bits rather than a whole XBM file, and to specify the size of the image.
width, specifies the width of the image, in pixels.
height, specifies the height of the image, in pixels.
The number of bool vector entries stored for each row; the smallest multiple of 8 greater than or equal to
