Declaration [src]

pango_layout_set_text (
  PangoLayout* layout,
  const char* text,
  int length

Description [src]

Sets the text of the layout.

This function validates text and renders invalid UTF-8 with a placeholder glyph.

Note that if you have used pango_layout_set_markup() or pango_layout_set_markup_with_accel() on layout before, you may want to call pango_layout_set_attributes() to clear the attributes set on the layout from the markup as this function does not clear attributes.


text const char*

The text.

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

Maximum length of text, in bytes. -1 indicates that the string is nul-terminated and the length should be calculated. The text will also be truncated on encountering a nul-termination even when length is positive.
