Scalable Vector Graphics: Text, Section 10.17.1Internet Explorer 9

 

Syntax


ISVGPoint retVal = object.getStartPositionOfChar(charnum);

Parameters

charnum [in]

Type: long

The index of the character, where the first character has an index of 0.

Standards information

Remarks

The character's current text position considers the effects of any inter-character adjustments because of kerning, letter-spacing, and word-spacing and adjustments because of the ISVGUseElement::x, ISVGUseElement::y, ISVGTextPositioningElement::dx, and ISVGTextPositioningElement::dy attributes. If multiple consecutive characters are rendered inseparably (for example, as a single glyph or a sequence of glyphs), each of the inseparable characters returns the start position for the first glyph.
