itemize


Description:


public List<Item> itemize (Context context, string text, int start_index, int length, AttrList attrs, AttrIterator? cached_iter)

Breaks a piece of text into segments with consistent directional level and font.

Each byte of text will be contained in exactly one of the items in the returned list; the generated list of items will be in logical order (the start offsets of the items are ascending).

cached_iter should be an iterator over attrs currently positioned at a range before or containing start_index ; cached_iter will be advanced to the range covering the position just after start_index + length. (i.e. if itemizing in a loop, just keep passing in the same cached_iter).

Parameters:

context

a structure holding information that affects the itemization process.

text

the text to itemize. Must be valid UTF-8

start_index

first byte in text to process

length

the number of bytes (not characters) to process after start_index. This must be >= 0.

attrs

the set of attributes that apply to text.

cached_iter

Cached attribute iterator

Returns:

a `GList` of [struct@Pango.Item] structures. The items should be freed using [method@Pango.Item.free] probably in combination with g_list_free_full.
