(This function is part of SDL_ttf, a separate library from SDL.)


Query the metrics (dimensions) of a font's 32-bit glyph.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3_ttf/SDL_ttf.h>


int TTF_GlyphMetrics32(TTF_Font *font, Uint32 ch,
                        int *minx, int *maxx,
                        int *miny, int *maxy, int *advance);

Function Parameters

TTF_Font * font the font to query.
Uint32 ch the character code to check.


To understand what these metrics mean, here is a useful link:

This is the same as TTF_GlyphMetrics(), but takes a 32-bit character instead of 16-bit, and thus can query a larger range. If you are sure you'll have an SDL_ttf that's version 2.0.18 or newer, there's no reason not to use this function exclusively.


This function is available since SDL_ttf 3.0.0.
