gtkTextBufferRegisterSerializeTagset: gtkTextBufferRegisterSerializeTagset


This function registers GTK+'s internal rich text serialization format with the passed buffer. The internal format does not comply to any standard rich text format and only works between GtkTextBuffer instances. It is capable of serializing all of a text buffer's tags and embedded pixbufs.





a GtkTextBuffer

an optional tagset name, on NULL. [ allow-none ]


This function is just a wrapper around gtkTextBufferRegisterSerializeFormat. The mime type used for registering is "application/x-gtk-text-buffer-rich-text", or "application/x-gtk-text-buffer-rich-text;" if a was passed.

The can be used to restrict the transfer of rich text to buffers with compatible sets of tags, in order to avoid unknown tags from being pasted. It is probably the common case to pass an identifier != NULL here, since the NULL tagset requires the receiving buffer to deal with with pasting of arbitrary tags. Since 2.10


[GdkAtom] the GdkAtom that corresponds to the newly registered format's mime-type.
