Members

otmSize

The size, in bytes, of the OUTLINETEXTMETRIC structure.

otmTextMetrics

A TEXTMETRIC structure containing further information about the font.

otmFiller

A value that causes the structure to be byte-aligned.

otmPanoseNumber

The PANOSE number for this font.

otmfsSelection

The nature of the font pattern. This member can be a combination of the following bits.

BitMeaning
0Italic
1Underscore
2Negative
3Outline
4Strikeout
5Bold

 

otmfsType

Indicates whether the font is licensed. Licensed fonts must not be modified or exchanged. If bit 1 is set, the font may not be embedded in a document. If bit 1 is clear, the font can be embedded. If bit 2 is set, the embedding is read-only.

otmsCharSlopeRise

The slope of the cursor. This value is 1 if the slope is vertical. Applications can use this value and the value of the otmsCharSlopeRun member to create an italic cursor that has the same slope as the main italic angle (specified by the otmItalicAngle member).

otmsCharSlopeRun

The slope of the cursor. This value is zero if the slope is vertical. Applications can use this value and the value of the otmsCharSlopeRise member to create an italic cursor that has the same slope as the main italic angle (specified by the otmItalicAngle member).

otmItalicAngle

The main italic angle of the font, in tenths of a degree counterclockwise from vertical. Regular (roman) fonts have a value of zero. Italic fonts typically have a negative italic angle (that is, they lean to the right).

otmEMSquare

The number of logical units defining the x- or y-dimension of the em square for this font. (The number of units in the x- and y-directions are always the same for an em square.)

otmAscent

The maximum distance characters in this font extend above the base line. This is the typographic ascent for the font.

otmDescent

The maximum distance characters in this font extend below the base line. This is the typographic descent for the font.

otmLineGap

The typographic line spacing.

otmsCapEmHeight

Not supported.

otmsXHeight

Not supported.

otmrcFontBox

The bounding box for the font.

otmMacAscent

The maximum distance characters in this font extend above the base line for the Macintosh computer.

otmMacDescent

The maximum distance characters in this font extend below the base line for the Macintosh computer.

otmMacLineGap

The line-spacing information for the Macintosh computer.

otmusMinimumPPEM

The smallest recommended size for this font, in pixels per em-square.

otmptSubscriptSize

The recommended horizontal and vertical size for subscripts in this font.

otmptSubscriptOffset

The recommended horizontal and vertical offset for subscripts in this font. The subscript offset is measured from the character origin to the origin of the subscript character.

otmptSuperscriptSize

The recommended horizontal and vertical size for superscripts in this font.

otmptSuperscriptOffset

The recommended horizontal and vertical offset for superscripts in this font. The superscript offset is measured from the character base line to the base line of the superscript character.

otmsStrikeoutSize

The width of the strikeout stroke for this font. Typically, this is the width of the em dash for the font.

otmsStrikeoutPosition

The position of the strikeout stroke relative to the base line for this font. Positive values are above the base line and negative values are below.

otmsUnderscoreSize

The thickness of the underscore character for this font.

otmsUnderscorePosition

The position of the underscore character for this font.

otmpFamilyName

The offset from the beginning of the structure to a string specifying the family name for the font.

otmpFaceName

The offset from the beginning of the structure to a string specifying the typeface name for the font. (This typeface name corresponds to the name specified in the LOGFONT structure.)

otmpStyleName

The offset from the beginning of the structure to a string specifying the style name for the font.

otmpFullName

The offset from the beginning of the structure to a string specifying the full name for the font. This name is unique for the font and often contains a version number or other identifying information.

Remarks

The sizes returned in OUTLINETEXTMETRIC are specified in logical units; that is, they depend on the current mapping mode of the specified display context.

Note, OUTLINETEXTMETRIC is defined using the current pack setting. To avoid problems, make sure that the application is built using the platform default packing. For example, 32-bit Windows uses a default of 8-byte packing. For more information, see the MSDN topic "C-Compiler Packing Issues".
