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


Initialize SDL_ttf.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3_ttf/SDL_ttf.h>


int TTF_Init(void);

Return Value

(int) Returns 0 on success, -1 on error.


You must successfully call this function before it is safe to call any other function in this library, with one exception: a human-readable error message can be retrieved from TTF_GetError() if this function fails.

SDL must be initialized before calls to functions in this library, because this library uses utility functions from the SDL library.

It is safe to call this more than once; the library keeps a counter of init calls, and decrements it on each call to TTF_Quit, so you must pair your init and quit calls.


This function is available since SDL_ttf 3.0.0.
