Method

PangoFontDescriptionset_variations

Declaration [src]

void
pango_font_description_set_variations (
  PangoFontDescription* desc,
  const char* variations
)

Description [src]

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.

The format of the variations string is

AXIS1=VALUE,AXIS2=VALUE...

with each AXIS a 4 character tag that identifies a font axis, and each VALUE a floating point number. Unknown axes are ignored, and values are clamped to their allowed range.

Pango does not currently have a way to find supported axes of a font. Both harfbuzz or freetype have API for this.

Available since:1.42

Parameters

variations const char*
 

A string representing the variations.

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
 The string is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
