Detailed Description

A Pango::Layout represents an entire paragraph of text.

It is initialized with a Pango::Context, UTF-8 string and set of attributes for that string. Once that is done, the set of formatted lines can be extracted from the object, the layout can be rendered, and conversion between logical character positions within the layout's text, and the physical position of the resulting glyphs can be made.

Member Function Documentation

void Pango::Layout::add_to_cairo_context ( const Cairo::RefPtr< Cairo::Context > &  context)

Adds the text in this LayoutLine to the current path in the specified Cairo context.

The origin of the glyphs (the left edge of the line) will be at the current point of the cairo context.

Parameters
contextA Cairo context.
void Pango::Layout::context_changed ( )

Forces recomputation of any state in the Pango::Layout that might depend on the layout's context.

This function should be called if you make changes to the context subsequent to creating the layout.

Glib::RefPtr<Layout> Pango::Layout::copy ( )

Does a deep copy-by-value of the src layout.

The attribute list, tab array, and text from the original layout are all copied by value.

Returns
The newly allocated Pango::Layout, with a reference count of one, which should be freed with Glib::object_unref().
static Glib::RefPtr<Layout> Pango::Layout::create ( const Glib::RefPtr< Context >&  context)
static
static Glib::RefPtr<Layout> Pango::Layout::create ( const Cairo::RefPtr< Cairo::Context > &  context)
static

Creates a layout object set up to match the current transformation and target surface of the Cairo context.

This layout can then be used for text measurement with functions like get_size() or drawing with methods like show_in_cairo_contet(). If you change the transformation or target surface for context, you need to call update_from_cairo_context()

This is the most convenient way to use Cairo with Pango. However it is slightly inefficient since it creates a separate Pango Context object for each layout. This might matter in an application that is laying out large amounts of text.

Parameters
contextA Cairo context.
Returns
The newly created Pango Layout.
Alignment Pango::Layout::get_alignment ( ) const

Gets the alignment for the layout: how partial lines are positioned within the horizontal space available.

Returns
The alignment.
AttrList Pango::Layout::get_attributes ( ) const

Gets the attribute list for the layout, if any.

Returns
A Pango::AttrList.
bool Pango::Layout::get_auto_dir ( ) const

Gets whether to calculate the bidirectional base direction for the layout according to the contents of the layout.

See set_auto_dir().

Since pangomm 1.4:
Returns
true if the bidirectional base direction is computed from the layout's contents, false otherwise.
int Pango::Layout::get_baseline ( ) const

Gets the Y position of baseline of the first line in layout.

Since pangomm 1.22:
Returns
Baseline of first line, from top of layout.
int Pango::Layout::get_character_count ( ) const

Returns the number of Unicode characters in the the text of layout.

Since pangomm 1.30:
Returns
The number of Unicode characters in the text of layout.
Glib::RefPtr<Context> Pango::Layout::get_context ( ) const

Retrieves the Pango::Context used for this layout.

Returns
The Pango::Context for the layout. This does not have an additional refcount added, so if you want to keep a copy of this around, you must reference it yourself.
void Pango::Layout::get_cursor_pos ( int  index,
Rectangle strong_pos,
Rectangle weak_pos 
) const

Given an index within a layout, determines the positions that of the strong and weak cursors if the insertion point is at that index.

The position of each cursor is stored as a zero-width rectangle. The strong cursor location is the location where characters of the directionality equal to the base direction of the layout are inserted. The weak cursor location is the location where characters of the directionality opposite to the base direction of the layout are inserted.

Parameters
indexThe byte index of the cursor.
strong_posLocation to store the strong cursor position (may be nullptr).
weak_posLocation to store the weak cursor position (may be nullptr).
Rectangle Pango::Layout::get_cursor_strong_pos ( int  index) const

Given an index within the layout, determine the positions that of the strong cursors if the insertion point is at that index.

Parameters
indexThe byte index of the cursor.
Returns
The strong cursor position.
Rectangle Pango::Layout::get_cursor_weak_pos ( int  index) const

Given an index within the layout, determine the positions that of the weak cursors if the insertion point is at that index.

Parameters

Glib::RefPtr<LayoutLine> Pango::Layout::get_line ( int  line)

Retrieves a particular line from a Pango::Layout.

Use the faster get_line_readonly() if you do not plan to modify the contents of the line (glyphs, glyph widths, etc.).

Parameters
lineThe index of a line, which must be between 0 and pango_layout_get_line_count(layout) - 1, inclusive.
Returns
The requested Pango::LayoutLine, or nullptr if the index is out of range. This layout line can be ref'ed and retained, but will become invalid if changes are made to the Pango::Layout.
Glib::RefPtr<const LayoutLine> Pango::Layout::get_line ( int  line) const

Retrieves a particular line from a Pango::Layout.

This is a faster alternative to get_line(), but the user is not expected to modify the contents of the line (glyphs, glyph widths, etc.).

Since pangomm 1.16:
Parameters
lineThe index of a line, which must be between 0 and pango_layout_get_line_count(layout) - 1, inclusive.
Returns
The requested Pango::LayoutLine, or nullptr if the index is out of range. This layout line can be ref'ed and retained, but will become invalid if changes are made to the Pango::Layout. No changes should be made to the line.

Retrieves the count of lines for the layout.

Returns
The line count.
std::vector<Glib::RefPtr<LayoutLine> > Pango::Layout::get_lines ( )

Returns the lines of the layout as a list.

Use the faster get_lines_readonly() if you do not plan to modify the contents of the lines (glyphs, glyph widths, etc.).

Returns
A SList containing the lines in the layout. This points to internal data of the Pango::Layout and must be used with care. It will become invalid on any change to the layout's text or properties.
std::vector<Glib::RefPtr<const LayoutLine> > Pango::Layout::get_lines ( ) const

Returns the lines of the layout as a list.

This is a faster alternative to get_lines(), but the user is not expected to modify the contents of the lines (glyphs, glyph widths, etc.).

Since pangomm 1.16:
Returns
A SList containing the lines in the layout. This points to internal data of the Pango::Layout and must be used with care. It will become invalid on any change to the layout's text or properties. No changes should be made to the lines.
std::vector<LogAttr> Pango::Layout::get_log_attrs ( ) const

Retrieve an array of logical attributes for each character in the layout.

Returns
An array of logical attributes.
Rectangle Pango::Layout::get_logical_extents ( ) const

Compute the logical extents of layout.

Returns
The logical extents of the layout.
void Pango::Layout::get_pixel_extents ( Rectangle ink_rect,
Rectangle logical_rect 
) const

Compute the logical and ink extents of layout in device units.

See get_extents(); this function just calls get_extents() and then converts the extents to pixels using the Pango::SCALE factor.

Parameters
ink_rectRectangle used to store the extents of the layout as drawn.
logical_rectRectangle used to store the logical extents of the layout.
Rectangle Pango::Layout::get_pixel_ink_extents ( ) const

void Pango::Layout::get_pixel_size ( int &  width,
int &  height 
) const

Determines the logical width and height of a Pango::Layout in device units.

(get_size() returns the width and height scaled by Pango::SCALE.) This is simply a convenience function around get_pixel_extents().

Parameters
widthLocation to store the logical width, or nullptr.
heightLocation to store the logical height, or nullptr.
guint Pango::Layout::get_serial ( ) const

Returns the current serial number of layout.

The serial number is initialized to an small number larger than zero when a new layout is created and is increased whenever the layout is changed using any of the setter functions, or the Pango::Context it uses has changed. The serial may wrap, but will never have the value 0. Since it can wrap, never compare it with "less than", always use "not equals".

This can be used to automatically detect changes to a Pango::Layout, and is useful for example to decide whether a layout needs redrawing. To force the serial to be increased, use context_changed().

Since pangomm 1.32.4:
Returns
The current serial number of layout.
bool Pango::Layout::get_single_paragraph_mode ( ) const

Obtains the value set by set_single_paragraph_mode().

Returns
A copy of the tabs for this layout.
Glib::ustring Pango::Layout::get_text ( ) const

Gets the text in the layout.

The returned text should not be freed or modified.

Returns

int Pango::Layout::get_unknown_glyphs_count ( ) const

Counts the number unknown glyphs in layout.

That is, zero if glyphs for all characters in the layout text were found, or more than zero otherwise.

This function can be used to determine if there are any fonts available to render all characters in a certain string, or when used in combination with Pango::AttrType::FALLBACK, to check if a certain font supports all the characters in the string.

Since pangomm 1.16:
Returns
The number of unknown glyphs in layout.

void Pango::Layout::move_cursor_visually ( bool  strong,
int  old_index,
int  old_trailing,
int  direction,
int &  new_index,
int &  new_trailing 
) const

Computes a new cursor position from an old position and a count of positions to move visually.

If direction is positive, then the new strong cursor position will be one position to the right of the old cursor position. If direction is negative, then the new strong cursor position will be one position to the left of the old cursor position.

In the presence of bidirectional text, the correspondence between logical and visual order will depend on the direction of the current run, and there may be jumps when the cursor is moved off of the end of a run.

Motion here is in cursor positions, not in characters, so a single call to move_cursor_visually() may move the cursor over multiple characters when multiple characters combine to form a single grapheme.

Parameters
strongWhether the moving cursor is the strong cursor or the weak cursor. The strong cursor is the cursor corresponding to text insertion in the base direction for the layout.
old_indexThe byte index of the grapheme for the old index.
old_trailingIf 0, the cursor was at the leading edge of the grapheme indicated by old_index, if > 0, the cursor was at the trailing edge.
directionDirection to move cursor. A negative value indicates motion to the left.
new_indexLocation to store the new cursor byte index. A value of -1 indicates that the cursor has been moved off the beginning of the layout. A value of G_MAXINT indicates that the cursor has been moved off the end of the layout.
new_trailingNumber of characters to move forward from the location returned for new_index to get the position where the cursor should be displayed. This allows distinguishing the position at the beginning of one line from the position at the end of the preceding line. new_index is always on the line where the cursor should be displayed.

void Pango::Layout::set_alignment ( Alignment  alignment)

Sets the alignment for the layout: how partial lines are positioned within the horizontal space available.

Parameters
alignmentThe alignment.
void Pango::Layout::set_attributes ( AttrList attrs)

Sets the text attributes for a layout object.

References attrs, so the caller can unref its reference.

Parameters
attrsA Pango::AttrList, can be nullptr.
void Pango::Layout::set_auto_dir ( bool  auto_dir = true)

Sets whether to calculate the bidirectional base direction for the layout according to the contents of the layout; when this flag is on (the default), then paragraphs in layout that begin with strong right-to-left characters (Arabic and Hebrew principally), will have right-to-left layout, paragraphs with letters from other scripts will have left-to-right layout.

Paragraphs with only neutral characters get their direction from the surrounding paragraphs.

When false, the choice between left-to-right and right-to-left layout is done according to the base direction of the layout's Pango::Context. (See Pango::Context::set_base_dir()).

When the auto-computed direction of a paragraph differs from the base direction of the context, the interpretation of Pango::Alignment::LEFT and Pango::Alignment::RIGHT are swapped.

Since pangomm 1.4:
Parameters
auto_dirIf true, compute the bidirectional base direction from the layout's contents.
void Pango::Layout::set_ellipsize ( EllipsizeMode  ellipsize)

Sets the type of ellipsization being performed for layout.

Depending on the ellipsization mode ellipsize text is removed from the start, middle, or end of text so they fit within the width and height of layout set with set_width() and set_height().

If the layout contains characters such as newlines that force it to be layed out in multiple paragraphs, then whether each paragraph is ellipsized separately or the entire layout is ellipsized as a whole depends on the set height of the layout. See set_height() for details.

Since pangomm 1.6:
Parameters
ellipsizeThe new ellipsization mode for layout.
void Pango::Layout::set_font_description ( const FontDescription desc)

Set the default font description for the layout.

If no font description is set on the layout, the font description from the layout's context is used.

Parameters
descThe new pango font description.
void Pango::Layout::set_height ( int  height)

Sets the height to which the Pango::Layout should be ellipsized at.

There are two different behaviors, based on whether height is positive or negative.

If height is positive, it will be the maximum height of the layout. Only lines would be shown that would fit, and if there is any text omitted, an ellipsis added. At least one line is included in each paragraph regardless of how small the height value is. A value of zero will render exactly one line for the entire layout.

If height is negative, it will be the (negative of) maximum number of lines per paragraph. That is, the total number of lines shown may well be more than this value if the layout contains multiple paragraphs of text. The default value of -1 means that first line of each paragraph is ellipsized. This behvaior may be changed in the future to act per layout instead of per paragraph. File a bug against pango at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/ if your code relies on this behavior.

Height setting only has effect if a positive width is set on layout and ellipsization mode of layout is not Pango::EllipsizeMode::NONE. The behavior is undefined if a height other than -1 is set and ellipsization mode is set to Pango::EllipsizeMode::NONE, and may change in the future.

Since pangomm 1.20:
Parameters
heightThe desired height of the layout in Pango units if positive, or desired number of lines if negative.
void Pango::Layout::set_indent ( int  indent)

Sets the width in Pango units to indent each paragraph.

A negative value of indent will produce a hanging indentation. That is, the first line will have the full width, and subsequent lines will be indented by the absolute value of indent.

The indent setting is ignored if layout alignment is set to Pango::Alignment::CENTER.

Parameters
indentThe amount by which to indent.
void Pango::Layout::set_justify ( bool  justify = true)

Sets whether each complete line should be stretched to fill the entire width of the layout.

This stretching is typically done by adding whitespace, but for some scripts (such as Arabic), the justification may be done in more complex ways, like extending the characters.

Note that this setting is not implemented and so is ignored in Pango older than 1.18.

Parameters
justifyWhether the lines in the layout should be justified.
void Pango::Layout::set_markup ( const Glib::ustring markup)

Sets the layout text and attribute list from marked-up text (see markup format).

Replaces the current text and attribute list.

Parameters
markupSome marked-up text.
void Pango::Layout::set_markup ( const Glib::ustring markup,
gunichar  accel_marker,
gunichar &  accel_char 
)

Sets the layout text and attribute list from marked-up text (see markup format).

Replaces the current text and attribute list.

If accel_marker is nonzero, the given character will mark the character following it as an accelerator. For example, the accel marker might be an ampersand or underscore. All characters marked as an accelerator will receive a Pango::UNDERLINE_LOW attribute, and the first character so marked will be returned in accel_char. Two accel_marker characters following each other produce a single literal accel_marker character.

Parameters
markupSome marked-up text.
accel_markerMarker for accelerators in the text.
accel_charReturn location for any located accelerators.
void Pango::Layout::set_single_paragraph_mode ( bool  setting = true)

If setting is true, do not treat newlines and similar characters as paragraph separators; instead, keep all text in a single paragraph, and display a glyph for paragraph separator characters.

Used when you want to allow editing of newlines on a single text line.

Parameters
settingNew setting.
void Pango::Layout::set_spacing ( int  spacing)

Sets the amount of spacing in Pango unit between the lines of the layout.

Parameters
spacingThe amount of spacing.
void Pango::Layout::set_tabs ( TabArray tabs)

Sets the tabs to use for layout, overriding the default tabs (by default, tabs are every 8 spaces).

If tabs is nullptr, the default tabs are reinstated. tabs is copied into the layout; you must free your copy of tabs yourself.

Parameters
tabsA Pango::TabArray, or nullptr.
void Pango::Layout::set_text ( const Glib::ustring text)

Set the text of the layout.

Parameters
textThe text for the layout.
void Pango::Layout::set_width ( int  width)

Sets the width to which the lines of the Pango::Layout should wrap or ellipsized.

The default value is -1: no width set.

Parameters
widthThe desired width in Pango units, or -1 to indicate that no wrapping or ellipsization should be performed.
void Pango::Layout::set_wrap ( WrapMode  wrap)

Sets the wrap mode; the wrap mode only has effect if a width is set on the layout with set_width().

To turn off wrapping, set the width to -1.

Parameters
wrapThe wrap mode.
void Pango::Layout::show_in_cairo_context ( const Cairo::RefPtr< Cairo::Context > &  context)

Draws a Layout in the specified Cairo context.

The top-left corner of the Layout will be drawn at the current point of the cairo context.

Parameters
contextA Cairo context.
Since pangomm 2.16:
void Pango::Layout::unset_font_description ( )
void Pango::Layout::update_from_cairo_context ( const Cairo::RefPtr< Cairo::Context > &  context)

Updates the private Pango Context of a Pango Layout created with create(const Cairo::RefPtr<Cairo::Context>&) to match the current transformation and target surface of a Cairo Context.

Parameters
contextA Cairo context.
bool Pango::Layout::xy_to_index ( int  x,
int  y,
int &  index,
int &  trailing 
) const

Converts from X and Y position within a layout to the byte index to the character at that logical position.

If the Y position is not inside the layout, the closest position is chosen (the position will be clamped inside the layout). If the X position is not within the layout, then the start or the end of the line is chosen as described for Pango::LayoutLine::x_to_index(). If either the X or Y positions were not inside the layout, then the function returns false; on an exact hit, it returns true.

Parameters
xThe X offset (in Pango units) from the left edge of the layout.
yThe Y offset (in Pango units) from the top edge of the layout.
indexLocation to store calculated byte index.
trailingLocation to store a integer indicating where in the grapheme the user clicked. It will either be zero, or the number of characters in the grapheme. 0 represents the leading edge of the grapheme.
Returns
true if the coordinates were inside text, false otherwise.
