Constructor

GtkTextMarknew

Declaration [src]

GtkTextMark*
gtk_text_mark_new (
  const gchar* name,
  gboolean left_gravity
)

Description [src]

Creates a text mark. Add it to a buffer using gtk_text_buffer_add_mark(). If name is NULL, the mark is anonymous; otherwise, the mark can be retrieved by name using gtk_text_buffer_get_mark(). If a mark has left gravity, and text is inserted at the mark’s current location, the mark will be moved to the left of the newly-inserted text. If the mark has right gravity (left_gravity = FALSE), the mark will end up on the right of newly-inserted text. The standard left-to-right cursor is a mark with right gravity (when you type, the cursor stays on the right side of the text you’re typing).
