Description

Functions

gtk_text_mark_new ()

GtkTextMark *
gtk_text_mark_new (const gchar *name,
                   gboolean left_gravity);

Creates a text mark. Add it to a buffer using gtk_text_buffer_add_mark(). If name is NULL, the mark is anonymous; otherwise, the mark can be retrieved by name using gtk_text_buffer_get_mark(). If a mark has left gravity, and text is inserted at the mark's current location, the mark will be moved to the left of the newly-inserted text. If the mark has right gravity (left_gravity = FALSE), the mark will end up on the right of newly-inserted text. The standard left-to-right cursor is a mark with right gravity (when you type, the cursor stays on the right side of the text you're typing).

Parameters

name

mark name or NULL.

[allow-none]

left_gravity

whether the mark should have left gravity

 

Returns

new GtkTextMark

Since: 2.12


gtk_text_mark_set_visible ()

void
gtk_text_mark_set_visible (GtkTextMark *mark,
                           gboolean setting);

Sets the visibility of mark ; the insertion point is normally visible, i.e. you can see it as a vertical bar. Also, the text widget uses a visible mark to indicate where a drop will occur when dragging-and-dropping text. Most other marks are not visible. Marks are not visible by default.

Parameters

mark

a GtkTextMark

 

setting

visibility of mark

 

gtk_text_mark_get_visible ()

gboolean
gtk_text_mark_get_visible (GtkTextMark *mark);

Returns TRUE if the mark is visible (i.e. a cursor is displayed for it).

Parameters

mark

a GtkTextMark

 

Returns

TRUE if visible


gtk_text_mark_get_deleted ()

gboolean
gtk_text_mark_get_deleted (GtkTextMark *mark);

Returns TRUE if the mark has been removed from its buffer with gtk_text_buffer_delete_mark(). See gtk_text_buffer_add_mark() for a way to add it to a buffer again.

Parameters

mark

a GtkTextMark

whether the mark is deleted


gtk_text_mark_get_name ()

const gchar *
gtk_text_mark_get_name (GtkTextMark *mark);

Returns the mark name; returns NULL for anonymous marks.

Parameters

gtk_text_mark_get_buffer ()

GtkTextBuffer *
gtk_text_mark_get_buffer (GtkTextMark *mark);

Gets the buffer this mark is located inside, or NULL if the mark is deleted.

Parameters

Returns

the mark's GtkTextBuffer.
