Render UCS-2 text at fast quality to a new 8-bit surface.
SDL_Surface * TTF_RenderUNICODE_Solid(TTF_Font *font,const Uint16 *text, SDL_Color fg);
|the font to render with.
|text to render, in UCS-2 encoding.
|the foreground color for the text.
Returns a new 8-bit, palettized surface, or NULL if there was an error.
This function will allocate a new 8-bit, palettized surface. The surface's 0 pixel will be the colorkey, giving a transparent background. The 1 pixel will be set to the text color.
This will not word-wrap the string; you'll get a surface with a single line of text, as long as the string requires. You can use TTF_RenderUNICODE_Solid_Wrapped() instead if you need to wrap the output to multiple lines.
This will not wrap on newline characters.
Please note that this function is named "Unicode" but currently expects UCS-2 encoding (16 bits per codepoint). This does not give you access to large Unicode values, such as emoji glyphs. These codepoints are accessible through the UTF-8 version of this function.
You can render at other quality levels with TTF_RenderUNICODE_Shaded, TTF_RenderUNICODE_Blended, and TTF_RenderUNICODE_LCD.
This function is available since SDL_ttf 3.0.0.
