gimptextlayer — Functions for querying and manipulating text layers.

Description

Functions for querying and manipulating text layers.

Functions

gimp_text_layer_new ()

gint32
gimp_text_layer_new (gint32 image_ID,
                     const gchar *text,
                     const gchar *fontname,
                     gdouble size,
                     GimpUnit unit);

Creates a new text layer.

This procedure creates a new text layer. The arguments are kept as simple as necessary for the normal case. All text attributes, however, can be modified with the appropriate gimp_text_layer_set_*() procedures. The new layer still needs to be added to the image, as this is not automatic. Add the new layer using gimp_image_insert_layer().

Parameters

image_ID

The image.

 

text

The text to generate (in UTF-8 encoding).

 

fontname

The name of the font.

 

size

The size of text in either pixels or points.

 

unit

The units of specified size.

 

Returns

The new text layer.

Since: 2.6
