Instance Method

ensureGlyphsForCharacterRange:

Forces the receiver to generate glyphs for the specified character range, if it has not already done so.

Declaration

- (void)ensureGlyphsForCharacterRange:(NSRange)charRange;

Parameters

charRange

The character range for which glyphs are generated.

Discussion

The layout manager reserves the right to perform glyph generation for larger ranges. If noncontiguous layout is disabled, then the affected range is always effectively extended to start at the beginning of the text.
