pango.FontMap — an object that represents the set of fonts available for a particular rendering system.

Synopsis

class pango.FontMap(gobject.GObject):
    def create_context()

def load_fontset(context, desc, language)
def list_families()
def get_shape_engine_type()

Ancestry

Description

A pango.FontMap object represents the set of fonts available for a particular rendering system. There appears to be no way to retrieve a pango.FontMap object in PyGTK.

Methods

pango.FontMap.create_context

    def create_context()

Returns :

the newly allocated pango.Context.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.16 and above.

Creates a pango.Context connected to fontmap. This is equivalent to calling the class constructor followed by pango.Context.set_font_map.

If you are using Pango as part of a higher-level system, that system may have it's own way of create a pango.Context. For instance, the GTK+ toolkit has, among others, gtk.gdk.pango_context_get_for_screen and gtk.Widget.get_pango_context. Use those instead.

pango.FontMap.load_font

    def load_font(context, desc)

context :

the pango.Context the font will be used with

desc :

a pango.FontDescription describing the font to load

Returns :

the loaded font , or None if no font matched.

The load_font() method loads the pango.Font in the fontmap that is the closest match for the pango.FontDescription specified by desc in the pango.Context specified by context.

pango.FontMap.load_fontset

    def load_fontset(context, desc, language)

context :

the pango.Context the font will be used with

desc :

a pango.FontDescription describing the font to load

language :

a pango.Language the fonts will be used for

Returns :

a pango.FontSet, or None if no font matched.

The load_fontset() method loads a set of pango.Font objects in the fontmap that can be used to render a font matching the pango.FontDescription specified by desc for the pango.Language specified by language in the pango.Context specified by context.

pango.FontMap.list_families

    def list_families()

Returns :

a list of pango.FontFamily objects.

The list_families() method returns a list of all pango.FontFamily objects for the fontmap.

pango.FontMap.get_shape_engine_type

    def get_shape_engine_type()

Returns :

the ID string for the shape engines for the font map.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.4 and above.

The get_shape_engine_type() method returns the render ID for the shape engines for the font map
