Set a hint with a specific priority.

Header File

Defined in SDL_hints.h, but apps should only #include "SDL.h"!


SDL_bool SDL_SetHintWithPriority(const char *name,
                                 const char *value,
                                 SDL_HintPriority priority);

Function Parameters

name the hint to set
value the value of the hint variable
priority the SDL_HintPriority level for the hint

Return Value

Returns SDL_TRUE if the hint was set, SDL_FALSE otherwise.


The priority controls the behavior when setting a hint that already has a value. Hints will replace existing hints of their priority and lower. Environment variables are considered to have override priority.


This function is available since SDL 2.0.0.
