Re: Pango Layout Mystery

Can anyone explain to me why "$layout->get_pixel_size()" returns
different values than those I'd get when I get the Gnome2:Canvas::Item
'text-height' and 'text-width' properties? I've looked at several other
Layout properties (spacing, indent, justify) and they all return "0". In
the example below, I get:

text, text: Hello World!  font: Ariel Normal 10  text_height: 13
layout_height: 17  text_width: 66  layout_width: 76

When i run it, i get text_height: 17 and layout_height: 17, but text_width: 77
and layout_height: 72.

At the end of gnome_canvas_text_set_property() i found this code:

        if (text->layout)
                pango_layout_get_pixel_size (text->layout,
        else {
                text->max_width = 0;
                text->height = 0;

which appears to be the only place where the values of ->height and
->max_width are set.  Those values are used in
gnome_canvas_text_get_property() like so:

        case PROP_TEXT_WIDTH:
                g_value_set_double (value, text->max_width /

        case PROP_TEXT_HEIGHT:
                g_value_set_double (value, text->height / text->item.canvas->pixels_per_unit);

That is, when you do this:

my $text_width = $text->get('text-width');
my $text_height = $text->get('text-height');

you're essentially doing

    my ($layout_width, $layout_height) = $layout->get_pixel_size();
    $layout_width /= $text->pixels_per_unit;
    $layout_height /= $text->pixels_per_unit;

Granted, this is based on looking for about two minutes at stuff i had lying
