sealed class Tinman.Engine.Drawing.PixelFontGlyph

Helper class for storing glyph specification data.

The following figure shows the metrics of an exemplary font glyph:

  ## := one pixel

The outer rectangle represents the font glyph box. In a pixel font, all font glyph boxes have the same height (see IPixelFontInfo.Height, i.e. A + B + C) and the same baseline distance (see IPixelFontInfo.Ascent, i.e. A + B). The inner rectangle represents the trimmed glyph pixels, which result from removing all empty pixel rows resp. columns from the edges of the font glyph box.

Public / Methods


public method KerningWidth → (1)

other in : PixelFontGlyph

The other font glyph.

returns → int32

The initial kerning width, given as the smallest distance between the right and left pixel columns of the trimmed glyph pixels of the glyph pair.

Computes the initial kerning width between this font glyph and the given other in font glyph.


public method ValueAt → (2)

in : int32

X-coordinate of a trimmed glyph pixels.

in : int32

Y-coordinate of a trimmed glyph pixels.

returns → int32

The pixel value in the range [0..255]. Will be 255 if in or in are out of the bounds of the font glyph box.

Returns the glyph value at the given pixel coordinate.

Public / Attributes


public readonly attribute Bounds → (Box2I)

The bounds of the trimmed glyph pixels in the font image.

The font image is usually used as a GPU texture during rendering, so that value may be used to compute texture coordinates.


public readonly attribute Character → (char)

The character value that is associated with the glyph.


public readonly attribute Offset → (Vec2I)

Offset from the top-left corner of the font glyph box to the top-left corner of the trimmed glyph pixels.


public readonly attribute Width → (int32)

The width of the font glyph box.
