Method

GtkTextIterget_visible_text

Declaration [src]

gtk_text_iter_get_visible_text (
  const GtkTextIter* start,
  const GtkTextIter* end
)

Description [src]

Returns visible text in the given range.

Like gtk_text_iter_get_text(), but invisible text is not included. Invisible text is usually invisible because a GtkTextTag with the “invisible” attribute turned on has been applied to it.

Return value

Type: char*

The caller of the method takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
