PangoFontMapcreate_context

Declaration [src]

PangoContext*
pango_font_map_create_context (
  PangoFontMap* fontmap
)

Description [src]

Creates a PangoContext connected to fontmap.

This is equivalent to pango_context_new() 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 PangoContext. For instance, the GTK toolkit has, among others, gtk_widget_get_pango_context(). Use those instead.

Available since:1.22

Return value

Returns: PangoContext
 

The newly allocated PangoContext, which should be freed with g_object_unref().

 The caller of the method takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
