NAME

XFontSetExtents - XFontSetExtents structure

CONTENTS

Structures

STRUCTURES

The XFontSetExtents structure contains:







typedef struct {
        XRectangle max_ink_extent;      /* over all drawable characters */
        XRectangle max_logical_extent;  /* over all drawable characters */
} XFontSetExtents;











The XRectangle structures used to return font set metrics are the usual Xlib screen-oriented rectangles with x, y giving the upper left corner, and width and height always positive.

The max_ink_extent member gives the maximum extent, over all drawable characters, of the rectangles that bound the character glyph image drawn in the foreground color, relative to a constant origin. See XmbTextExtents and XwcTextExtents for detailed semantics.

The max_logical_extent member gives the maximum extent, over all drawable characters, of the rectangles that specify minimum spacing to other graphical features, relative to a constant origin. Other graphical features drawn by the client, for example, a border surrounding the text, should not intersect this rectangle. The max_logical_extent member should be used to compute minimum interline spacing and the minimum area that must be allowed in a text field to draw a given number of arbitrary characters.

Due to context-dependent rendering, appending a given character to a string may change the string’s extent by an amount other than that character’s individual extent.
