Instance Method

rangeOfNominallySpacedGlyphsContainingIndex:

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.

Declaration

- (NSRange)rangeOfNominallySpacedGlyphsContainingIndex:(NSUInteger)glyphIndex;

Parameters

glyphIndex

Index of the glyph to test.

Return Value

The range of nominally spaced glyphs.

Discussion

The range returned begins with the first glyph, counting back from glyphIndex, that has a location set, and it continues up to, but does not include, the next glyph that has a location set.

Performs glyph generation and layout if needed.
