The canvas.Raster is like an image but draws exactly one spot for each pixel on the screen. This means that as a user interface scales or the image resizes more pixels will be requested to fill the space. To do this we use a Generator function as illustrated in this example - it will be used to return the colour of each pixel.

The generator functions can be pixel based (as in this example where we generate a new random colour for each pixel) or based on full images. Generating complete images (with canvas.NewRaster()) is more efficient but sometimes controlling pixels directly is more convenient.

package main

import (


func main() {
	myApp := app.New()
	w := myApp.NewWindow("Raster")

	raster := canvas.NewRasterWithPixels(
		func(_, _, w, h int) color.Color {
			return color.RGBA{R: uint8(rand.Intn(255)),
				G: uint8(rand.Intn(255)),
				B: uint8(rand.Intn(255)), A: 0xff}
	// raster := canvas.NewRasterFromImage()
	w.Resize(fyne.NewSize(120, 100))

If your pixel data is stored in an image you can load it through the NewRasterFromImage() function which will load the image to display pixel perfect on screen.
