Method

GtkTextBufferget_iter_at_line_index

Declaration [src]

gboolean
gtk_text_buffer_get_iter_at_line_index (
  GtkTextBuffer* buffer,
  GtkTextIter* iter,
  int line_number,
  int 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.

If line_number is greater than or equal to 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 int
 

Line number counting from 0

byte_index int
 

Byte index from start of line.

Return value

Returns: gboolean
 

Whether the exact position has been found.
