Method

GtkTextBufferget_selection_bound

Declaration [src]

GtkTextMark*
gtk_text_buffer_get_selection_bound (
  GtkTextBuffer* buffer
)

Description [src]

Returns the mark that represents the selection bound.

Equivalent to calling gtk_text_buffer_get_mark() to get the mark named “selection_bound”, but very slightly more efficient, and involves less typing.

The currently-selected text in buffer is the region between the “selection_bound” and “insert” marks. If “selection_bound” and “insert” are in the same place, then there is no current selection. gtk_text_buffer_get_selection_bounds() is another convenient function for handling the selection, if you just want to know whether there’s a selection and what its bounds are.

Return value

Returns: GtkTextMark
 

Selection bound mark.

 The data is owned by the instance.
