Calculate how much of a Latin1 string will fit in a given width.
int TTF_MeasureText(TTF_Font *font, const char *text, int measure_width, int *extent, int *count);
|font||the font to query.|
|text||text to calculate, in Latin1 encoding.|
|measure_width||maximum width, in pixels, available for the string.|
|count||on return, filled with number of characters that can be rendered.|
|extent||on return, filled with latest calculated width.|
Returns 0 if successful, -1 on error.
This reports the number of characters that can be rendered before reaching
This does not need to render the string to do this calculation.
You almost certainly want TTF_MeasureUTF8() unless you're sure you have a 1-byte Latin1 encoding. US ASCII characters will work with either function, but most other Unicode characters packed into a
const char * will need UTF-8.
This function is available since SDL_ttf 3.0.0.
