mdraw_image_text(3) Draw an M-text on a window as an image.


int mdraw_image_text (MFrame * frame, MDrawWindow win, int x, int y, MText * mt, int from, int to)


Draw an M-text on a window as an image. The mdraw_image_text() function draws the text between from and to of M-text mt as image on window win of frame frame at coordinate (x, y).

The way to draw a text is the same as in mdraw_text() except that this function also draws the background with the color specified by faces.

This function is the counterpart of XDrawImageString(), XmbDrawImageString(), and XwcDrawImageString() functions in the X Window System.


If the operation was successful, mdraw_image_text() returns 0. If an error is detected, it returns -1 and assigns an error code to the external variable merror_code.
