class SourceBuffer : TextBuffer {}

Constructors

this
this(GtkSourceBuffer* gtkSourceBuffer, bool ownedRef = false)

Sets our main struct and passes it to the parent class.

this
this(TextTagTable table)

Creates a new source buffer.

this
this(SourceLanguage language)

Functions

addOnBracketMatched
gulong addOnBracketMatched(void delegate(TextIter, GtkSourceBracketMatchType, SourceBuffer) dlg, ConnectFlags connectFlags = cast(ConnectFlags)0)

iter is set to a valid iterator pointing to the matching bracket if state is GTK_SOURCE_BRACKET_MATCH_FOUND. Otherwise iter is meaningless.

addOnHighlightUpdated
gulong addOnHighlightUpdated(void delegate(TextIter, TextIter, SourceBuffer) dlg, ConnectFlags connectFlags = cast(ConnectFlags)0)

The ::highlight-updated signal is emitted when the syntax highlighting and [context classes][context-classes] are updated in a certain region of the buffer.

addOnRedo
gulong addOnRedo(void delegate(SourceBuffer) dlg, ConnectFlags connectFlags = cast(ConnectFlags)0)

The ::redo signal is emitted to redo the last undo operation.

addOnSourceMarkUpdated
gulong addOnSourceMarkUpdated(void delegate(TextMark, SourceBuffer) dlg, ConnectFlags connectFlags = cast(ConnectFlags)0)

The ::source-mark-updated signal is emitted each time a mark is added to, moved or removed from the buffer.

addOnUndo
gulong addOnUndo(void delegate(SourceBuffer) dlg, ConnectFlags connectFlags = cast(ConnectFlags)0)

The ::undo signal is emitted to undo the last user action which modified the buffer.

backwardIterToSourceMark
bool backwardIterToSourceMark(TextIter iter, string category)

Moves iter to the position of the previous gsv.SourceMark of the given category. Returns TRUE if iter was moved. If category is NULL, the previous source mark can be of any category.

beginNotUndoableAction
void beginNotUndoableAction()

Marks the beginning of a not undoable action on the buffer, disabling the undo manager. Typically you would call this function before initially setting the contents of the buffer (e.g. when loading a file in a text editor).

canRedo
bool canRedo()

Determines whether a source buffer can redo the last action (i.e. if the last operation was an undo).

canUndo
bool canUndo()

Determines whether a source buffer can undo the last action.

changeCase
void changeCase(GtkSourceChangeCaseType caseType, TextIter start, TextIter end)

Changes the case of the text between the specified iterators.

createSourceMark
SourceMark createSourceMark(string name, string category, TextIter where)

Creates a source mark in the buffer of category category. A source mark is a gtk.TextMark but organised into categories. Depending on the category a pixbuf can be specified that will be displayed along the line of the mark.

endNotUndoableAction
void endNotUndoableAction()

Marks the end of a not undoable action on the buffer. When the last not undoable block is closed through the call to this function, the list of undo actions is cleared and the undo manager is re-enabled.

ensureHighlight
void ensureHighlight(TextIter start, TextIter end)

Forces buffer to analyze and highlight the given area synchronously.

forwardIterToSourceMark
bool forwardIterToSourceMark(TextIter iter, string category)

Moves iter to the position of the next gsv.SourceMark of the given category. Returns TRUE if iter was moved. If category is NULL, the next source mark can be of any category.

iterBackwardToContextClassToggle
bool iterBackwardToContextClassToggle(TextIter iter, string contextClass)

Moves backward to the next toggle (on or off) of the context class. If no matching context class toggles are found, returns FALSE, otherwise TRUE. Does not return toggles located at iter, only toggles after iter. Sets iter to the location of the toggle, or to the end of the buffer if no toggle is found.

iterForwardToContextClassToggle
bool iterForwardToContextClassToggle(TextIter iter, string contextClass)

Moves forward to the next toggle (on or off) of the context class. If no matching context class toggles are found, returns FALSE, otherwise TRUE.

Check if the class context_class is set on iter.

joinLines
void joinLines(TextIter start, TextIter end)

setStyleScheme
void setStyleScheme(SourceStyleScheme scheme)

Sets a gsv.SourceStyleScheme to be used by the buffer and the view.

setUndoManager
void setUndoManager(SourceUndoManagerIF manager)

Set the buffer undo manager. If manager is NULL the default undo manager will be set.

Sort the lines of text between the specified iterators.

undo
void undo()

Undoes the last user action which modified the buffer. Use Source.bufferCanUndo to check whether a call to this function will have any effect.

insertWithTags
void insertWithTags(TextIter iter, string text, TextTag[] tags...)

Inserts text into buffer at iter, applying the list of tags to the newly-inserted text. The last tag specified must be NULL to terminate the list. Equivalent to calling TextBuffer.insert, then TextBuffer.applyTag on the inserted text; TextBuffer.insertWithTags is just a convenience function.

insertWithTagsByName
void insertWithTagsByName(TextIter iter, string text, string[] tags...)

Same as TextBuffer.insertWithTags, but allows you to pass in tag names instead of tag objects.

createTag
TextTag createTag(string tagName, ...)

Creates a tag and adds it to the tag table for buffer. Equivalent to adding a new tag to the buffer's tag table.

getText
string getText()

Obtain the entire text

getType
GType getType()
addMark
void addMark(TextMark mark, TextIter where)

Adds the mark at position where. The mark must not be added to another buffer, and if its name is not NULL then there must not be another mark in the buffer with the same name.

addSelectionClipboard
void addSelectionClipboard(Clipboard clipboard)

Adds clipboard to the list of clipboards in which the selection contents of buffer are available. In most cases, clipboard will be the gtk.Clipboard of type GDK_SELECTION_PRIMARY for a view of buffer.

applyTag
void applyTag(TextTag tag, TextIter start, TextIter end)

Emits the “apply-tag” signal on buffer. The default handler for the signal applies tag to the given range. start and end do not have to be in order.

applyTagByName
void applyTagByName(string name, TextIter start, TextIter end)

Calls TextTag.tableLookup on the buffer’s tag table to get a gtk.TextTag, then calls TextBuffer.applyTag.

backspace
bool backspace(TextIter iter, bool interactive, bool defaultEditable)

Performs the appropriate action as if the user hit the delete key with the cursor at the position specified by iter. In the normal case a single character will be deleted, but when combining accents are involved, more than one character can be deleted, and when precomposed character and accent combinations are involved, less than one character will be deleted.

beginUserAction
void beginUserAction()

Called to indicate that the buffer operations between here and a call to TextBuffer.endUserAction are part of a single user-visible operation. The operations between TextBuffer.beginUserAction and TextBuffer.endUserAction can then be grouped when creating an undo stack. gtk.TextBuffer maintains a count of calls to TextBuffer.beginUserAction that have not been closed with a call to TextBuffer.endUserAction, and emits the “begin-user-action” and “end-user-action” signals only for the outermost pair of calls. This allows you to build user actions from other user actions.

copyClipboard
void copyClipboard(Clipboard clipboard)

Copies the currently-selected text to a clipboard.

createChildAnchor
TextChildAnchor createChildAnchor(TextIter iter)

This is a convenience function which simply creates a child anchor with TextChildAnchor.new and inserts it into the buffer with TextBuffer.insertChildAnchor. The new anchor is owned by the buffer; no reference count is returned to the caller of TextBuffer.createChildAnchor.

createMark
TextMark createMark(string markName, TextIter where, bool leftGravity)

Creates a mark at position where. If mark_name is NULL, the mark is anonymous; otherwise, the mark can be retrieved by name using TextBuffer.getMark. If a mark has left gravity, and text is inserted at the mark’s current location, the mark will be moved to the left of the newly-inserted text. If the mark has right gravity (left_gravity = FALSE), the mark will end up on the right of newly-inserted text. The standard left-to-right cursor is a mark with right gravity (when you type, the cursor stays on the right side of the text you’re typing).

cutClipboard
void cutClipboard(Clipboard clipboard, bool defaultEditable)

Copies the currently-selected text to a clipboard, then deletes said text if it’s editable.

delet
void delet(TextIter start, TextIter end)

Deletes text between start and end. The order of start and end is not actually relevant; TextBuffer.delete will reorder them. This function actually emits the “delete-range” signal, and the default handler of that signal deletes the text. Because the buffer is modified, all outstanding iterators become invalid after calling this function; however, the start and end will be re-initialized to point to the location where text was deleted.

deleteInteractive
bool deleteInteractive(TextIter startIter, TextIter endIter, bool defaultEditable)

Deletes all editable text in the given range. Calls TextBuffer.delete for each editable sub-range of [start,end). start and end are revalidated to point to the location of the last deleted range, or left untouched if no text was deleted.

deleteMark
void deleteMark(TextMark mark)

Deletes mark, so that it’s no longer located anywhere in the buffer. Removes the reference the buffer holds to the mark, so if you haven’t called g_object_ref() on the mark, it will be freed. Even if the mark isn’t freed, most operations on mark become invalid, until it gets added to a buffer again with TextBuffer.addMark. Use TextMark.getDeleted to find out if a mark has been removed from its buffer. The mark-deleted signal will be emitted as notification after the mark is deleted.

deleteMarkByName
void deleteMarkByName(string name)

Deletes the mark named name; the mark must exist. See TextBuffer.deleteMark for details.

deleteSelection
bool deleteSelection(bool interactive, bool defaultEditable)

Deletes the range between the “insert” and “selection_bound” marks, that is, the currently-selected text. If interactive is TRUE, the editability of the selection will be considered (users can’t delete uneditable text).

deserialize
bool deserialize(TextBuffer contentBuffer, GdkAtom format, TextIter iter, ubyte[] data)

This function deserializes rich text in format format and inserts it at iter.

deserializeGetCanCreateTags
bool deserializeGetCanCreateTags(GdkAtom format)

This functions returns the value set with TextBuffer.deserializeSetCanCreateTags

deserializeSetCanCreateTags
void deserializeSetCanCreateTags(GdkAtom format, bool canCreateTags)

Use this function to allow a rich text deserialization function to create new tags in the receiving buffer. Note that using this function is almost always a bad idea, because the rich text functions you register should know how to map the rich text format they handler to your text buffers set of tags.

endUserAction
void endUserAction()

Should be paired with a call to TextBuffer.beginUserAction. See that function for a full explanation.

getBounds
void getBounds(out TextIter start, out TextIter end)

Retrieves the first and last iterators in the buffer, i.e. the entire buffer lies within the range [start,end).

getCharCount
int getCharCount()

Gets the number of characters in the buffer; note that characters and bytes are not the same, you can’t e.g. expect the contents of the buffer in string form to be this many bytes long. The character count is cached, so this function is very fast.

getCopyTargetList
TargetList getCopyTargetList()

This function returns the list of targets this text buffer can provide for copying and as DND source. The targets in the list are added with info values from the GtkTextBufferTargetInfo enum, using TargetList.addRichTextTargets and TargetList.addTextTargets.

getDeserializeFormats
GdkAtom[] getDeserializeFormats()

This function returns the rich text deserialize formats registered with buffer using TextBuffer.registerDeserializeFormat or TextBuffer.registerDeserializeTagset

getEndIter
void getEndIter(out TextIter iter)

Initializes iter with the “end iterator,” one past the last valid character in the text buffer. If dereferenced with TextIter.getChar, the end iterator has a character value of 0. The entire buffer lies in the range from the first position in the buffer (call TextBuffer.getStartIter to get character position 0) to the end iterator.

getHasSelection
bool getHasSelection()

Indicates whether the buffer has some text currently selected.

getInsert
TextMark getInsert()

Returns the mark that represents the cursor (insertion point). Equivalent to calling TextBuffer.getMark to get the mark named “insert”, but very slightly more efficient, and involves less typing.

getIterAtChildAnchor
void getIterAtChildAnchor(out TextIter iter, TextChildAnchor anchor)

Obtains the location of anchor within buffer.

getIterAtLine
void getIterAtLine(out TextIter iter, int lineNumber)

Initializes iter to the start of the given line. If line_number is greater than the number of lines in the buffer, the end iterator is returned.

getIterAtLineIndex
void getIterAtLineIndex(out TextIter iter, int lineNumber, int byteIndex)

Obtains an iterator pointing to byte_index within the given line. byte_index must be the start of a UTF-8 character. Note bytes, not characters; UTF-8 may encode one character as multiple bytes.

getIterAtLineOffset
void getIterAtLineOffset(out TextIter iter, int lineNumber, int charOffset)

Obtains an iterator pointing to char_offset within the given line. Note characters, not bytes; UTF-8 may encode one character as multiple bytes.

getIterAtMark
void getIterAtMark(out TextIter iter, TextMark mark)

Initializes iter with the current position of mark.

getIterAtOffset
void getIterAtOffset(out TextIter iter, int charOffset)

Initializes iter to a position char_offset chars from the start of the entire buffer. If char_offset is -1 or greater than the number of characters in the buffer, iter is initialized to the end iterator, the iterator one past the last valid character in the buffer.

getLineCount
int getLineCount()

Obtains the number of lines in the buffer. This value is cached, so the function is very fast.

getMark
TextMark getMark(string name)

Returns the mark named name in buffer buffer, or NULL if no such mark exists in the buffer.

getModified
bool getModified()

Indicates whether the buffer has been modified since the last call to TextBuffer.setModified set the modification flag to FALSE. Used for example to enable a “save” function in a text editor.

getPasteTargetList
TargetList getPasteTargetList()

This function returns the list of targets this text buffer supports for pasting and as DND destination. The targets in the list are added with info values from the GtkTextBufferTargetInfo enum, using TargetList.addRichTextTargets and TargetList.addTextTargets.

getSelectionBound
TextMark getSelectionBound()

Returns the mark that represents the selection bound. Equivalent to calling TextBuffer.getMark to get the mark named “selection_bound”, but very slightly more efficient, and involves less typing.

getSelectionBounds
bool getSelectionBounds(out TextIter start, out TextIter end)

Returns TRUE if some text is selected; places the bounds of the selection in start and end (if the selection has length 0, then start and end are filled in with the same value). start and end will be in ascending order. If start and end are NULL, then they are not filled in, but the return value still indicates whether text is selected.

getSerializeFormats
GdkAtom[] getSerializeFormats()

This function returns the rich text serialize formats registered with buffer using TextBuffer.registerSerializeFormat or TextBuffer.registerSerializeTagset

getSlice
string getSlice(TextIter start, TextIter end, bool includeHiddenChars)

Returns the text in the range [start,end). Excludes undisplayed text (text marked with tags that set the invisibility attribute) if include_hidden_chars is FALSE. The returned string includes a 0xFFFC character whenever the buffer contains embedded images, so byte and character indexes into the returned string do correspond to byte and character indexes into the buffer. Contrast with TextBuffer.getText. Note that 0xFFFC can occur in normal text as well, so it is not a reliable indicator that a pixbuf or widget is in the buffer.

getStartIter
void getStartIter(out TextIter iter)

Initialized iter with the first position in the text buffer. This is the same as using TextBuffer.getIterAtOffset to get the iter at character offset 0.

getTagTable
TextTagTable getTagTable()

Get the gtk.TextTagTable associated with this buffer.

getText
string getText(TextIter start, TextIter end, bool includeHiddenChars)

Returns the text in the range [start,end). Excludes undisplayed text (text marked with tags that set the invisibility attribute) if include_hidden_chars is FALSE. Does not include characters representing embedded images, so byte and character indexes into the returned string do not correspond to byte and character indexes into the buffer. Contrast with TextBuffer.getSlice.

insert
void insert(TextIter iter, string text)

Inserts len bytes of text at position iter. If len is -1, text must be nul-terminated and will be inserted in its entirety. Emits the “insert-text” signal; insertion actually occurs in the default handler for the signal. iter is invalidated when insertion occurs (because the buffer contents change), but the default signal handler revalidates it to point to the end of the inserted text.

insertAtCursor
void insertAtCursor(string text)

Simply calls TextBuffer.insert, using the current cursor position as the insertion point.

insertChildAnchor
void insertChildAnchor(TextIter iter, TextChildAnchor anchor)

Inserts a child widget anchor into the text buffer at iter. The anchor will be counted as one character in character counts, and when obtaining the buffer contents as a string, will be represented by the Unicode “object replacement character” 0xFFFC. Note that the “slice” variants for obtaining portions of the buffer as a string include this character for child anchors, but the “text” variants do not. E.g. see TextBuffer.getSlice and TextBuffer.getText. Consider TextBuffer.createChildAnchor as a more convenient alternative to this function. The buffer will add a reference to the anchor, so you can unref it after insertion.

insertInteractive
bool insertInteractive(TextIter iter, string text, bool defaultEditable)

Like TextBuffer.insert, but the insertion will not occur if iter is at a non-editable location in the buffer. Usually you want to prevent insertions at ineditable locations if the insertion results from a user action (is interactive).

insertInteractiveAtCursor
bool insertInteractiveAtCursor(string text, bool defaultEditable)

Calls TextBuffer.insertInteractive at the cursor position.

insertMarkup
void insertMarkup(TextIter iter, string markup, int len)

Inserts the text in markup at position iter. markup will be inserted in its entirety and must be nul-terminated and valid UTF-8. Emits the insert-text signal, possibly multiple times; insertion actually occurs in the default handler for the signal. iter will point to the end of the inserted text on return.

insertPixbuf
void insertPixbuf(TextIter iter, Pixbuf pixbuf)

Inserts an image into the text buffer at iter. The image will be counted as one character in character counts, and when obtaining the buffer contents as a string, will be represented by the Unicode “object replacement character” 0xFFFC. Note that the “slice” variants for obtaining portions of the buffer as a string include this character for pixbufs, but the “text” variants do not. e.g. see TextBuffer.getSlice and TextBuffer.getText.

insertRange
void insertRange(TextIter iter, TextIter start, TextIter end)

Copies text, tags, and pixbufs between start and end (the order of start and end doesn’t matter) and inserts the copy at iter. Used instead of simply getting/inserting text because it preserves images and tags. If start and end are in a different buffer from buffer, the two buffers must share the same tag table.

insertRangeInteractive
bool insertRangeInteractive(TextIter iter, TextIter start, TextIter end, bool defaultEditable)

Same as TextBuffer.insertRange, but does nothing if the insertion point isn’t editable. The default_editable parameter indicates whether the text is editable at iter if no tags enclosing iter affect editability. Typically the result of TextView.getEditable is appropriate here.

moveMark
void moveMark(TextMark mark, TextIter where)

Moves mark to the new location where. Emits the mark-set signal as notification of the move.

moveMarkByName
void moveMarkByName(string name, TextIter where)

Moves the mark named name (which must exist) to location where. See TextBuffer.moveMark for details.

pasteClipboard
void pasteClipboard(Clipboard clipboard, TextIter overrideLocation, bool defaultEditable)

Pastes the contents of a clipboard. If override_location is NULL, the pasted text will be inserted at the cursor position, or the buffer selection will be replaced if the selection is non-empty.

placeCursor
void placeCursor(TextIter where)

This function moves the “insert” and “selection_bound” marks simultaneously. If you move them to the same place in two steps with TextBuffer.moveMark, you will temporarily select a region in between their old and new locations, which can be pretty inefficient since the temporarily-selected region will force stuff to be recalculated. This function moves them as a unit, which can be optimized.

registerDeserializeFormat
GdkAtom registerDeserializeFormat(string mimeType, GtkTextBufferDeserializeFunc funct, void* userData, GDestroyNotify userDataDestroy)

This function registers a rich text deserialization function along with its mime_type with the passed buffer.

registerDeserializeTagset
GdkAtom registerDeserializeTagset(string tagsetName)

This function registers GTK+’s internal rich text serialization format with the passed buffer. See TextBuffer.registerSerializeTagset for details.

registerSerializeFormat
GdkAtom registerSerializeFormat(string mimeType, GtkTextBufferSerializeFunc funct, void* userData, GDestroyNotify userDataDestroy)

This function registers a rich text serialization function along with its mime_type with the passed buffer.

registerSerializeTagset
GdkAtom registerSerializeTagset(string tagsetName)

This function registers GTK+’s internal rich text serialization format with the passed buffer. The internal format does not comply to any standard rich text format and only works between gtk.TextBuffer instances. It is capable of serializing all of a text buffer’s tags and embedded pixbufs.

removeAllTags
void removeAllTags(TextIter start, TextIter end)

Removes all tags in the range between start and end. Be careful with this function; it could remove tags added in code unrelated to the code you’re currently writing. That is, using this function is probably a bad idea if you have two or more unrelated code sections that add tags.

removeSelectionClipboard
void removeSelectionClipboard(Clipboard clipboard)

Removes a gtk.Clipboard added with TextBuffer.addSelectionClipboard.

removeTag
void removeTag(TextTag tag, TextIter start, TextIter end)

Emits the “remove-tag” signal. The default handler for the signal removes all occurrences of tag from the given range. start and end don’t have to be in order.

removeTagByName
void removeTagByName(string name, TextIter start, TextIter end)

Calls TextTag.tableLookup on the buffer’s tag table to get a gtk.TextTag, then calls TextBuffer.removeTag.

selectRange
void selectRange(TextIter ins, TextIter bound)

This function moves the “insert” and “selection_bound” marks simultaneously. If you move them in two steps with TextBuffer.moveMark, you will temporarily select a region in between their old and new locations, which can be pretty inefficient since the temporarily-selected region will force stuff to be recalculated. This function moves them as a unit, which can be optimized.

serialize
ubyte[] serialize(TextBuffer contentBuffer, GdkAtom format, TextIter start, TextIter end)

This function serializes the portion of text between start and end in the rich text format represented by format.

setModified
void setModified(bool setting)

Used to keep track of whether the buffer has been modified since the last time it was saved. Whenever the buffer is saved to disk, call gtk_text_buffer_set_modified (buffer, FALSE). When the buffer is modified, it will automatically toggled on the modified bit again. When the modified bit flips, the buffer emits the modified-changed signal.

setText
void setText(string text)

Deletes current contents of buffer, and inserts text instead. If len is -1, text must be nul-terminated. text must be valid UTF-8.

unregisterDeserializeFormat
void unregisterDeserializeFormat(GdkAtom format)

This function unregisters a rich text format that was previously registered using TextBuffer.registerDeserializeFormat or TextBuffer.registerDeserializeTagset.

unregisterSerializeFormat
void unregisterSerializeFormat(GdkAtom format)

This function unregisters a rich text format that was previously registered using TextBuffer.registerSerializeFormat or TextBuffer.registerSerializeTagset
