NAME

       xcb_image_text_8 - Draws text

SYNOPSIS

       #include <xcb/xproto.h>

   Request function
       xcb_void_cookie_t xcb_image_text_8(xcb_connection_t *conn, uint8_t string_len,
              xcb_drawable_t drawable, xcb_gcontext_t gc, int16_t x, int16_t y, const
              char *string);

REQUEST ARGUMENTS

       conn      The XCB connection to X11.

       string_len
                 The length of the string. Note that this parameter limited by 255 due to using 8
                 bits!

       drawable  The drawable (Window or Pixmap) to draw text on.

       gc        The graphics context to use.

                 The following graphics context components are used: plane-mask, foreground,
                 background, font, subwindow-mode, clip-x-origin, clip-y-origin, and clip-mask.

       x         The x coordinate of the first character, relative to the origin of drawable.

       y         The y coordinate of the first character, relative to the origin of drawable.

       string    The string to draw. Only the first 255 characters are relevant due to the data
                 type of string_len.

DESCRIPTION

       Fills the destination rectangle with the background pixel from gc, then paints the text
       with the foreground pixel from gc. The upper-left corner of the filled rectangle is at [x,
       y - font-ascent]. The width is overall-width, the height is font-ascent + font-descent.
       The overall-width, font-ascent and font-descent are as returned by xcb_query_text_extents
       (TODO).

       Note that using X core fonts is deprecated (but still supported) in favor of client-side
       rendering using Xft.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns an xcb_void_cookie_t. Errors (if any) have to be handled in the event loop.

       If you want to handle errors directly with xcb_request_check instead, use
       xcb_image_text_8_checked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.

ERRORS

       xcb_match_error_t
