Reply Fields

response_type
The type of this reply, in this case XCB_QUERY_FONT. This field is also present in the xcb_generic_reply_t and can be used to tell replies apart from each other.
sequence
The sequence number of the last request processed by the X11 server.
length
The length of the reply, in words (a word is 4 bytes).
min_bounds
minimum bounds over all existing char
max_bounds
maximum bounds over all existing char
min_char_or_byte2
first character
max_char_or_byte2
last character
default_char
char to print for undefined character
properties_len
how many properties there are
draw_direction

One of the following values:

XCB_FONT_DRAW_LEFT_TO_RIGHT
TODO: NOT YET DOCUMENTED.
XCB_FONT_DRAW_RIGHT_TO_LEFT
TODO: NOT YET DOCUMENTED.
min_byte1
TODO: NOT YET DOCUMENTED.
max_byte1
TODO: NOT YET DOCUMENTED.
all_chars_exist
flag if all characters have nonzero size
font_ascent
baseline to top edge of raster
font_descent
baseline to bottom edge of raster
char_infos_len
TODO: NOT YET DOCUMENTED.

Description

Queries information associated with the font.

Return Value

Returns an xcb_query_font_cookie_t. Errors have to be handled when calling the reply function xcb_query_font_reply.

If you want to handle errors in the event loop instead, use xcb_query_font_unchecked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.

Errors

This request does never generate any errors.
