gdkPangoLayoutLineGetClipRegion: gdkPangoLayoutLineGetClipRegion

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s)

View source: R/gdkFuncs.R


Obtains a clip region which contains the areas where the given ranges of text would be drawn. x.origin and y.origin are the same position you would pass to gdkDrawLayoutLine. index.ranges should contain ranges of bytes in the layout's text. The clip region will include space to the left or right of the line (to the layout bounding box) if you have indexes above or below the indexes contained inside the line. This is to draw the selection all the way to the side of the layout. However, the clip region is in line coordinates, not layout coordinates.


gdkPangoLayoutLineGetClipRegion(line, x.origin, index.ranges)



a PangoLayoutLine


X pixel where you intend to draw the layout line with this clip


array of byte indexes into the layout, where even members of list are start indexes and odd elements are end indexes


Note that the regions returned correspond to logical extents of the text ranges, not ink extents. So the drawn line may in fact touch areas out of the clip region. The clip region is mainly useful for highlightling parts of text, such as when text is selected.


[GdkRegion] a clip region containing the given ranges
