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.

Warning

atspi_text_get_attributes has been deprecated since version 2.10 and should not be used in newly-written code. Use atspi_text_get_text_attributes instead. Rename to: atspi_text_get_text_attributes

Gets the attributes applied to a range of text from an AtspiText object. The text attributes correspond to CSS attributes where possible. <em>DEPRECATED</em>

obj :

a pointer to the AtspiText object to query.

atspi_text_get_attribute_run ()

GHashTable *        atspi_text_get_attribute_run        (AtspiText *obj,
                                                         gint offset,
