The PangoFontDescription structure represents the description of an ideal font. These structures are used both to list what fonts are available on the system and also for specifying the characteristics of a font to load.
Sets our main struct and passes it to the parent class.
Creates a nwe font description and set the family nd the size
Creates a new font description structure with all fields unset.
A destructor is present on this object, but not explicitly documented in the source.
Determines if the style attributes of new_match are a closer match for desc than those of old_match are, or if old_match is NULL, determines if new_match is a match at all. Approximate matching is done for weight and style; other style attributes must match exactly. Style attributes are all attributes other than family and size-related attributes. Approximate matching for style considers PANGO_STYLE_OBLIQUE and PANGO_STYLE_ITALIC as matches, but not as good a match as when the styles are equal.
Make a copy of a PangoFontDescription
Like pango_font_description_copy(), but only a shallow copy is made of the family name and other allocated fields. The result can only be used until desc is modified or freed. This is meant to be used when the copy is only needed temporarily.
Compares two font descriptions for equality. Two font descriptions are considered equal if the fonts they describe are provably identical. This means that their masks do not have to match, as long as other fields are all the same. (Two font descriptions may result in identical fonts being loaded, but still compare FALSE.)
Frees a font description.
Gets the family name field of a font description. See pango_font_description_set_family().
Gets the gravity field of a font description. See pango_font_description_set_gravity().
Get the main Gtk struct
Determines which fields in a font description have been set.
Gets the size field of a font description. See pango_font_description_set_size().
Determines whether the size of the font is in points (not absolute) or device units (absolute). See pango_font_description_set_size() and pango_font_description_set_absolute_size().
Gets the stretch field of a font description. See pango_font_description_set_stretch().
the main Gtk struct as a void*
Gets the style field of a PangoFontDescription See pango_font_description_set_style().
Gets the variant field of a PangoFontDescription See pango_font_description_set_variant().
Gets the variations field of a font description. See pango_font_description_set_variations().
Gets the weight field of a font description. See pango_font_description_set_weight().
Merges the fields that are set in desc_to_merge into the fields in desc. If replace_existing is FALSE, only fields in desc that are not already set are affected. If TRUE, then fields that are already set will be replaced as well.
Like pango_font_description_merge(), but only a shallow copy is made of the family name and other allocated fields. desc can only be used until desc_to_merge is modified or freed. This is meant to be used when the merged font description is only needed temporarily.
Sets the size field of a font description, in device units. This is mutually exclusive with pango_font_description_set_size() which sets the font size in points.
Like pango_font_description_set_family(), except that no copy of family is made. The caller must make sure that the string passed in stays around until desc has been freed or the name is set again. This function can be used if family is a static string such as a C string literal, or if desc is only needed temporarily.
Sets the gravity field of a font description. The gravity field specifies how the glyphs should be rotated. If gravity is PANGO_GRAVITY_AUTO, this actually unsets the gravity mask on the font description.
Sets the size field of a font description in fractional points. This is mutually exclusive with pango_font_description_set_absolute_size().
Sets the stretch field of a font description. The stretch field specifies how narrow or wide the font should be.
Sets the style field of a PangoFontDescription The gtk.Style enumeration describes whether the font is slanted and the manner in which it is slanted; it can be either PANGO_STYLE_NORMAL, PANGO_STYLE_ITALIC, or PANGO_STYLE_OBLIQUE Most fonts will either have a italic style or an oblique style, but not both, and font matching in Pango will match italic specifications with oblique fonts and vice-versa if an exact match is not found.
Sets the variant field of a font description. The glib.Variant can either be PANGO_VARIANT_NORMAL or PANGO_VARIANT_SMALL_CAPS.
Sets the variations field of a font description. OpenType font variations allow to select a font instance by specifying values for a number of axes, such as width or weight.
Like pango_font_description_set_variations(), except that no copy of variations is made. The caller must make sure that the string passed in stays around until desc has been freed or the name is set again. This function can be used if variations is a static string such as a C string literal, or if desc is only needed temporarily.
Sets the weight field of a font description. The weight field specifies how bold or light the font should be. In addition to the values of the PangoWeight enumeration, other intermediate numeric values are possible.
Creates a filename representation of a font description. The filename is identical to the result from calling pango_font_description_to_string(), but with underscores instead of characters that are untypical in filenames, and in lower case only.
Creates a string representation of a font description. See pango_font_description_from_string() for a description of the format of the string representation. The family list in the string description will only have a terminating comma if the last word of the list is a valid style option.
Unsets some of the fields in a PangoFontDescription The unset fields will get back to their default values.
Creates a new font description from a string representation in the form "[FAMILY-LIST] [STYLE-OPTIONS] SIZE", where FAMILY-LIST is a comma separated list of families optionally terminated by a comma, STYLE_OPTIONS is a whitespace separated list of words where each word describes one of style, variant, weight, stretch, or gravity, and SIZE is a decimal number (size in points) or optionally followed by the unit modifier "px" for absolute size. Any one of the options may be absent. If FAMILY-LIST is absent, then the family_name field of the resulting font description will be initialized to NULL. If STYLE-OPTIONS is missing, then all style options will be set to the default values. If SIZE is missing, the size in the resulting font description will be set to 0.
