NAME

       al_get_text_dimensions - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

              #include <allegro5/allegro_font.h>

              void al_get_text_dimensions(const ALLEGRO_FONT *f,
                 char const *text,
                 int *bbx, int *bby, int *bbw, int *bbh)

DESCRIPTION

       Sometimes,  the  al_get_text_width(3alleg5) and al_get_font_line_height(3alleg5) functions
       are not enough for  exact  text  placement,  so  this  function  returns  some  additional
       information.

       Returned variables (all in pixels):

       · x, y - Offset to upper left corner of bounding box.

       · w, h - Dimensions of bounding box.

       Note  that glyphs may go to the left and upwards of the X, in which case x and y will have
       negative values.
