pango.GlyphString — an object holding strings of glyphs and glyph information.

Synopsis

class pango.GlyphString(gobject.GBoxed):
    pango.GlyphString()
def set_size(new_len)
def copy()
def extents(font)
def extents_range(start, end, font)
def get_logical_widths(text, embedding_level)

Attributes

"num_glyphs"ReadThe number of glyphs in the glyph string.

Description

A pango.GlyphString object contains strings of glyphs with geometry and visual attribute information.

Constructor

    pango.GlyphString()

Returns :

a new pango.GlyphString

Creates a new pango.GlyphString containing no glyphs.

Methods

pango.GlyphString.set_size

    def set_size(new_len)

new_len :

the new length of the string.

The set_size() method resizes the glyph string to the length specified by new_len.

pango.GlyphString.copy

    def copy()

Returns :

a pango.GlyphString

The copy() method returns a pango.GlyphString that is a copy of the glyph string.

pango.GlyphString.extents

    def extents(font)

font :

a pango.Font

Returns :

a 2-tuple containing two 4-tuples representing the ink and logical extents rectangles of the glyph string.

The extents() method returns a 2-tuple containing two 4-tuples representing the logical and ink extents rectangles of the glyph string as rendered in the pango.Font specified by font. See the pango.Font.get_glyph_extents() for details about the interpretation of the rectangles.

pango.GlyphString.extents_range

    def extents_range(start, end, font)

start :

start index

end :

end index

font :

a pango.Font

Returns :

a 2-tuple containing two 4-tuples representing the ink and logical extents rectangles of the glyph string range.

The extents_range() method returns a 2-tuple containing two 4-tuples representing the logical and ink extents rectangles of a range (specified by start and end) of the glyph string as rendered in the pango.Font specified by font. The extents are relative to the start of the glyph string range (the origin of their coordinate system is at the start of the range, not at the start of the entire glyph string).

pango.GlyphString.get_logical_widths

    def get_logical_widths(text, embedding_level)

text :

the text corresponding to the glyphs

embedding_level :

the embedding level of the string

Returns :

a list containing the calculated character widths.

The get_logical_widths() method returns a list of the screen width of the characters in the specified text that corresponds to the glyph string. When multiple characters compose a single cluster, the width of the entire cluster is divided equally among the characters.
