Method

GtkTextBufferget_text

Declaration [src]

gchar*
gtk_text_buffer_get_text (
  GtkTextBuffer* buffer,
  const GtkTextIter* start,
  const GtkTextIter* end,
  gboolean include_hidden_chars
)

Description [src]

Returns the text in the range [start,end). Excludes undisplayed text (text marked with tags that set the invisibility attribute) if include_hidden_chars is FALSE. Does not include characters representing embedded images, so byte and character indexes into the returned string do not correspond to byte and character indexes into the buffer. Contrast with gtk_text_buffer_get_slice().

Gets propertyGtk.TextBuffer:text
