Query the metrics (dimensions) of a font's 16-bit glyph.
int TTF_GlyphMetrics(TTF_Font *font, Uint16 ch, int *minx, int *maxx, int *miny, int *maxy, int *advance);
|font||the font to query.|
|ch||the character code to check.|
To understand what these metrics mean, here is a useful link:
Note that this version of the function takes a 16-bit character code, which covers the Basic Multilingual Plane, but is insufficient to cover the entire set of possible Unicode values, including emoji glyphs. You should use TTF_GlyphMetrics32() instead, which offers the same functionality but takes a 32-bit codepoint instead.
The only reason to use this function is that it was available since the beginning of time, more or less.
This function is available since SDL_ttf 2.0.12.
