Method

GtkTextBufferinsert_range

Declaration [src]

void
gtk_text_buffer_insert_range (
  GtkTextBuffer* buffer,
  GtkTextIter* iter,
  const GtkTextIter* start,
  const GtkTextIter* end
)

Description [src]

Copies text, tags, and paintables between start and end and inserts the copy at iter.

The order of start and end doesn’t matter.

Used instead of simply getting/inserting text because it preserves images and tags. If start and end are in a different buffer from buffer, the two buffers must share the same tag table.

Implemented via emissions of the ::insert-text and ::apply-tag signals, so expect those.

Parameters

iter

Type: GtkTextIter

A position in buffer.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
start

Type: GtkTextIter

A position in a GtkTextBuffer

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
end

Type: GtkTextIter

Another position in the same buffer as start.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
