Method

GtkTextBufferget_iter_at_line_index

Declaration [src]

void
gtk_text_buffer_get_iter_at_line_index (
  GtkTextBuffer* buffer,
  GtkTextIter* iter,
  gint line_number,
  gint byte_index
)

Description [src]

Obtains an iterator pointing to byte_index within the given line. byte_index must be the start of a UTF-8 character. Note bytes, not characters; UTF-8 may encode one character as multiple bytes.

Before the 3.20 version, it was not allowed to pass an invalid location.

Since the 3.20 version, if line_number is greater than the number of lines in the buffer, the end iterator is returned. And if byte_index is off the end of the line, the iterator at the end of the line is returned.

Parameters

iter GtkTextIter
 

Iterator to initialize.

 The argument will be set by the function.
 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
line_number gint
 

Line number counting from 0

byte_index gint
 

Byte index from start of line.
