Like TextBuffer.insert, but the insertion will not occur if iter is at a non-editable location in the buffer. Usually you want to prevent insertions at ineditable locations if the insertion results from a user action (is interactive).

default_editable indicates the editability of text that doesn't have a tag affecting editability applied to it. Typically the result of TextView.getEditable is appropriate here.

class TextBuffer


iter TextIter

a position in buffer

text string

some UTF-8 text

defaultEditable bool

default editability of buffer

Return Value

Type: bool

whether text was actually inserted
