Instance Method

glyphRange(for:)

Returns the range of glyphs laid out within the given text container.

Declaration

func glyphRange(for container: NSTextContainer) -> NSRange

Discussion

This is a less efficient method than the similar textContainer(forGlyphAt:effectiveRange:).

Performs glyph generation and layout if needed.

func boundingRect(forGlyphRange: NSRange, in: NSTextContainer) -> CGRect

Returns a single bounding rectangle (in container coordinates) enclosing all glyphs and other marks drawn in the given text container for the given glyph range, including glyphs that draw outside their line fragment rectangles and text attributes such as underlining.

func characterIndex(for: CGPoint, in: NSTextContainer, fractionOfDistanceBetweenInsertionPoints: UnsafeMutablePointer<CGFloat>?) -> Int

Returns the index of the character falling under the given point, expressed in the given container's coordinate system.

func characterRange(forGlyphRange: NSRange, actualGlyphRange: NSRangePointer?) -> NSRange

Returns the range of characters that generated the glyphs in the given glyph range.

func fractionOfDistanceThroughGlyph(for: CGPoint, in: NSTextContainer) -> CGFloat

This method is a primitive for glyphIndex(for:in:fractionOfDistanceThroughGlyph:). You should always call the main method, not the primitives.

func glyphIndex(for: CGPoint, in: NSTextContainer) -> Int

This method is a primitive for glyphIndex(for:in:fractionOfDistanceThroughGlyph:). You should always call the main method, not the primitives.

func glyphIndex(for: CGPoint, in: NSTextContainer, fractionOfDistanceThroughGlyph: UnsafeMutablePointer<CGFloat>?) -> Int

Returns the index of the glyph falling under the given point, expressed in the given container's coordinate system.

func glyphRange(forBoundingRect: CGRect, in: NSTextContainer) -> NSRange

Returns the smallest contiguous range for glyphs that are laid out wholly or partially within the given rectangle in the given text container.

func glyphRange(forBoundingRectWithoutAdditionalLayout: CGRect, in: NSTextContainer) -> NSRange

Returns the smallest contiguous range for glyphs that are laid out wholly or partially within the given rectangle in the given text container.

func glyphRange(forCharacterRange: NSRange, actualCharacterRange: NSRangePointer?) -> NSRange

Returns the range of glyphs that are generated from the characters in the given character range.

func range(ofNominallySpacedGlyphsContaining: Int) -> NSRange

Returns the range for the glyphs around the given glyph that can be displayed using only their advancements from the font, without pairwise kerning or other adjustments to spacing.
