  guint position,
  const char* chars,

Description [src]

Inserts n_chars characters of chars into the contents of the buffer, at position position.

If n_chars is negative, then characters from chars will be inserted until a null-terminator is found. If position or n_chars are out of bounds, or the maximum buffer text length is exceeded, then they are coerced to sane values.

Note that the position and length are in characters, not in bytes.


position guint

chars const char*

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
 The string is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
n_chars guint

Return value

Returns: guint

The number of characters actually inserted.
