Method

GtkTextBufferget_iter_at_line_index

Declaration [src]

gboolean
gtk_text_buffer_get_iter_at_line_index (
  GtkTextBuffer* buffer,
  GtkTextIter* iter,
  int line_number,
  int byte_index
)

Description [src]

Obtains an iterator pointing to byte_index within the given line.

byte_index must be the start of a UTF-8 character. Note bytes, not characters; UTF-8 may encode one character as multiple bytes.

If line_number is greater than or equal to the number of lines in the buffer, the end iterator is returned. And if byte_index is off the end of the line, the iterator at the end of the line is returned.

Parameters

iter

Type: GtkTextIter

Iterator to initialize.

The argument will be set by the function.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.
line_number

Type: int

Line number counting from 0

byte_index

Type: int

Byte index from start of line.

Return value

Type: gboolean

Whether the exact position has been found.
