TTF_RenderText_LCD_Wrapped

Render word-wrapped Latin1 text at LCD subpixel quality to a new ARGB surface.

Syntax

SDL_Surface * TTF_RenderText_LCD_Wrapped(TTF_Font *font,
                const char *text, SDL_Color fg, SDL_Color bg, Uint32 wrapLength);

Function Parameters

font

the font to render with.

text

text to render, in Latin1 encoding.

fg

the foreground color for the text.

bg

the background color for the text.

Return Value

Returns a new 32-bit, ARGB surface, or NULL if there was an error.

Remarks

This function will allocate a new 32-bit, ARGB surface, and render alpha-blended text using FreeType's LCD subpixel rendering. This function returns the new surface, or NULL if there was an error.

Text is wrapped to multiple lines on line endings and on word boundaries if it extends beyond wrapLength in pixels.

If wrapLength is 0, this function will only wrap on newline characters.

You almost certainly want TTF_RenderUTF8_LCD_Wrapped() 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.

You can render at other quality levels with TTF_RenderText_Solid_Wrapped, TTF_RenderText_Shaded_Wrapped, and TTF_RenderText_Blended_Wrapped.

Version

This function is available since SDL_ttf 2.20.0.
