Package: gtk

Function gtk-text-buffer-get-text

Lambda List

gtk-text-buffer-get-text (buffer start end include-hidden-chars)


buffer -- a gtk-text-buffer object
start -- start of a range
end -- end of a range
include-hidden-chars -- whether to include invisible text

Return Value

An allocated UTF-8 string.


Returns the text in the range [start, end). Excludes undisplayed text, text marked with tags that set the invisibility attribute, if include-hidden-chars is nil. Does not include characters representing embedded images, so byte and character indexes into the returned string do not correspond to byte and character indexes into the buffer. Contrast with the function gtk-text-buffer-get-slice.
