Declaration [src]

pango_context_new (

Description [src]

Creates a new PangoContext initialized to default values.

This function is not particularly useful as it should always be followed by a pango_context_set_font_map() call, and the function pango_font_map_create_context() does these two steps together and hence users are recommended to use that.

If you are using Pango as part of a higher-level system, that system may have it’s own way of create a PangoContext. For instance, the GTK toolkit has, among others, gtk_widget_get_pango_context(). Use those instead.

Return value

Type: PangoContext

The newly allocated PangoContext, which should be freed with g_object_unref().

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