void elm_config_font_hint_type_set ( int  type)

Apply the specified font hinting type. EVAS_FONT_HINTING_NONE < No font hinting EVAS_FONT_HINTING_AUTO < Automatic font hinting EVAS_FONT_HINTING_BYTECODE < Bytecode font hinting

Parameters:
typeThe font hinting type

This applies font hint changes to all windows of the current application.

Since (EFL) :
1.13
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)

Apply the changes made with elm_config_font_overlay_set() and elm_config_font_overlay_unset() on the current Elementary window.

This applies all font overlays set to all objects in the UI.

Since :
2.3.1

Get Elementary's list of font overlays, set with elm_config_font_overlay_set().

Returns:
The font overlays list, with Elm_Font_Overlay blobs as data.

For each text class, one can set a font overlay for it, overriding the default font properties for that class coming from the theme in use. There is no need to free this list.

elm_config_font_overlay_set() and elm_config_font_overlay_unset().
Since :
2.3.1
void elm_config_font_overlay_set ( const char *  text_class,
const char *  font,
Evas_Font_Size  size 
)

Set a font overlay for a given Elementary text class.

Parameters:
text_classText class name
fontFont name and style string
sizeFont size.
Note:
If the size is lower than zero, the value will be the amount of the size percentage. ex) -50: half of the current size, -100: current size, -10: 1/10 size.

font has to be in the format returned by elm_font_fontconfig_name_get().

Since :
2.3.1
void elm_config_font_overlay_unset ( const char *  text_class)

Unset a font overlay for a given Elementary text class.

Parameters:
text_classText class name

This will bring back text elements belonging to text class text_class back to their default font settings.

Since :

Parameters:
listThe text classes list.
See also:
elm_config_text_classes_list_get().
Since :
2.3.1

Get Elementary's list of supported text classes.

Returns:
The text classes list, with Elm_Text_Class blobs as data.

Release the list with elm_text_classes_list_free().

Since :
2.3.1

Create a font hash table of available system fonts.

One must call it with list being the return value of evas_font_available_list(). The hash will be indexed by font (family) names, being its values Elm_Font_Properties blobs.

Parameters:
listThe list of available system fonts, as returned by evas_font_available_list().
Returns:
the font hash.
Note:
The user is supposed to get it populated at least with 3 default font families (Sans, Serif, Monospace), which should be present on most systems.
Since :
2.3.1

Free the hash returned by elm_font_available_hash_add().

Parameters:
hashthe hash to be freed.
Since :
2.3.1
void elm_font_fontconfig_name_free ( char *  name)

Free the font string return by elm_font_fontconfig_name_get().

Parameters:
namethe font properties struct
Since :
2.3.1
char* elm_font_fontconfig_name_get ( const char *  name,
const char *  style 
)

Translate a font name, bound to a style, into fontconfig's font names syntax.

Parameters:
nameThe font (family) name
styleThe given style (may be NULL)
Returns:
the font name and style string
Note:
The reverse translation can be achieved with elm_font_properties_get(), for one style only (single font instance, not family).
Since :
2.3.1
void elm_font_properties_free ( Elm_Font_Properties *  efp)

Free font properties return by elm_font_properties_get().

Parameters:
efpthe font properties struct
Since :
2.3.1
Elm_Font_Properties* elm_font_properties_get ( const char *  font)

Translate a font (family) name string in fontconfig's font names syntax into an Elm_Font_Properties struct.

Parameters:
fontThe font name and styles string
Returns:
the font properties struct
Note:
The reverse translation can be achieved with elm_font_fontconfig_name_get(), for one style only (single font instance, not family).
Since :
2.3.1
