markup_parser_new


Description:


[ Version ( since = "1.31.0" ) ]
public unowned MarkupParseContext markup_parser_new (unichar accel_marker)

Incrementally parses marked-up text to create a plain-text string and an attribute list.

See the [Pango Markup](pango_markup.html) docs for details about the supported markup.

If accel_marker is nonzero, the given character will mark the character following it as an accelerator. For example, accel_marker might be an ampersand or underscore. All characters marked as an accelerator will receive a pango_underline_low attribute, and the first character so marked will be returned in accel_char, when calling [ func@markup_parser_finish]. Two accel_marker characters following each other produce a single literal accel_marker character.

To feed markup to the parser, use parse on the returned `GMarkupParseContext`. When done with feeding markup to the parser, use [func@markup_parser_finish] to get the data out of it, and then use g_markup_parse_context_free to free it.

This function is designed for applications that read Pango markup from streams. To simply parse a string containing Pango markup, the [ func@parse_markup] API is recommended instead.

Parameters:

accel_marker

character that precedes an accelerator, or 0 for none

Returns:

a `GMarkupParseContext` that should be destroyed with g_markup_parse_context_free.
