XmbTextEscapement(3)            XLIB FUNCTIONS            XmbTextEscapement(3)



NAME
       XmbTextEscapement, XwcTextEscapement, Xutf8TextEscapement - obtain the
       escapement of text

SYNTAX
       int XmbTextEscapement(XFontSet font_set, char *string, int num_bytes);

       int XwcTextEscapement(XFontSet font_set, wchar_t *string, int
              num_wchars);

       int Xutf8TextEscapement(XFontSet font_set, char *string, int
              num_bytes);

ARGUMENTS
       font_set  Specifies the font set.

       num_bytes Specifies the number of bytes in the string argument.

       num_wchars
                 Specifies the number of characters in the string argument.

       string    Specifies the character string.

DESCRIPTION
       The XmbTextEscapement, XwcTextEscapement and Xutf8TextEscapement func-
       tions return the escapement in pixels of the specified string as a
       value, using the fonts loaded for the specified font set.  The escape-
       ment is the distance in pixels in the primary draw direction from the
       drawing origin to the origin of the next character to be drawn, assum-
       ing that the rendering of the next character is not dependent on the
       supplied string.

       Regardless of the character rendering order, the escapement is always
       positive.

       The function Xutf8TextEscapement is an extension introduced by The
       XFree86 Project, Inc. in their 4.0.2 release. Its presence is indicated
       by the macro X_HAVE_UTF8_STRING.
