TTF_RenderText_Shaded

Render Latin1 text at high quality to a new 8-bit surface.

Syntax

SDL_Surface * TTF_RenderText_Shaded(TTF_Font *font,
                const char *text, SDL_Color fg, SDL_Color bg);

Function Parameters

font

the font to render with.

text

text to render, in Latin1 encoding.

fg

the foreground color for the text.

Return Value

Returns a new 8-bit, palettized surface, or NULL if there was an error.

Remarks

This function will allocate a new 8-bit, palettized surface. The surface's 0 pixel will be the specified background color, while other pixels have varying degrees of the foreground color. This function returns the new surface, or NULL if there was an error.

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_RenderText_Shaded_Wrapped() instead if you need to wrap the output to multiple lines.

This will not wrap on newline characters.

You almost certainly want TTF_RenderUTF8_Shaded() 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, TTF_RenderText_Blended, and TTF_RenderText_LCD.

Version

This function is available since SDL_ttf 2.0.0.

TTF_RenderUTF8_Shaded
TTF_RenderUNICODE_Shaded
