Known Implementations

AtspiText is implemented by AtspiAccessible.

Description

The text interface should be implemented by objects which place textual information onscreen as character strings or glyphs. The text interface allows access to textual content including display attributes and semantic hints associated with runs of text, and to bounding boc information for glyphs and substrings. It also alows portions of text to be selected, if the objects StateSet includes STATE_SELECTABLE_TEXT.

Functions

atspi_range_copy ()

AtspiRange *
atspi_range_copy (AtspiRange *src);

Gets a copy of an AtspiRange object.

Parameters

src

a pointer to the source AtspiRange object that will be copied.
