Method

PangoItemsplit

Declaration [src]

PangoItem*
pango_item_split (
  PangoItem* orig,
  int split_index,
  int split_offset
)

Description [src]

Modifies orig to cover only the text after split_index, and returns a new item that covers the text before split_index that used to be in orig.

You can think of split_index as the length of the returned item. split_index may not be 0, and it may not be greater than or equal to the length of orig (that is, there must be at least one byte assigned to each item, you can’t create a zero-length item). split_offset is the length of the first item in chars, and must be provided because the text used to generate the item isn’t available, so pango_item_split() can’t count the char length of the split items itself.

Parameters

split_index int
 

Byte index of position to split item, relative to the start of the item.

split_offset int
 

Number of chars between start of orig and split_index.

Return value

Returns: PangoItem
 

New item representing text before split_index, which should be freed with pango_item_free().

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