IDWriteFontFace::GetGdiCompatibleGlyphMetrics method

Obtains glyph metrics in font design units with the return values compatible with what GDI would produce.

Syntax


HRESULT GetGdiCompatibleGlyphMetrics(
  FLOAT emSize,
  FLOAT pixelsPerDip,
  [in, optional]  const DWRITE_MATRIX *transform,
  BOOL useGdiNatural,
  [in]            const UINT16 *glyphIndices,
  UINT32 glyphCount,
  [out]           DWRITE_GLYPH_METRICS *glyphMetrics,
  BOOL isSideways
);

Parameters

emSize

Type: FLOAT

The ogical size of the font in DIP units.

pixelsPerDip

Type: FLOAT

The number of physical pixels per DIP.

transform [in, optional]

Type: const DWRITE_MATRIX*

An optional transform applied to the glyphs and their positions. This transform is applied after the scaling specified by the font size and pixelsPerDip.

useGdiNatural

Type: BOOL

When set to FALSE, the metrics are the same as the metrics of GDI aliased text. When set to TRUE, the metrics are the same as the metrics of text measured by GDI using a font created with CLEARTYPE_NATURAL_QUALITY.

glyphIndices [in]

Type: const UINT16*

An array of glyph indices for which to compute the metrics.

glyphCount

Type: UINT32

The number of elements in the glyphIndices array.

glyphMetrics [out]

Type: DWRITE_GLYPH_METRICS*

An array of DWRITE_GLYPH_METRICS structures filled by this function. The metrics are in font design units.

isSideways

Type: BOOL

A BOOL value that indicates whether the font is being used in a sideways run. This can affect the glyph metrics if the font has oblique simulation because sideways oblique simulation differs from non-sideways oblique simulation.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

Standard HRESULT error code. If any of the input glyph indices are outside of the valid glyph index range for the current font face, E_INVALIDARG will be returned.

Requirements

Library

Dwrite.lib

DLL

Dwrite.dll
