void TTF_SetFontStyle(TTF_Font *font, int style)
- The loaded font to set the style of.
A bitmask of the desired style composed from the TTF_STYLE_* defined values.
Set the rendering style of the loaded font.
NOTE: SDL_ttf's "styles" are fake styles generated by artificially skewing or emboldening the regular font. They will not make use of real italic and bold styles, which are considered different fonts - for best results, switch to a real italic or bold font rather than using this functionality.
NOTE: Passing a NULL font into this function will cause a segfault.
NOTE: This will flush the internal cache of previously rendered glyphs, even if there is no change in style, so it may be best to check the current style using TTF_GetFontStyle first.
NOTE: I've seen that combining TTF_STYLE_UNDERLINE with anything can cause a segfault, other combinations may also do this. Some brave soul may find the cause of this and fix it...
// set the loaded font's style to fake bold italics //TTF_Font *font; TTF_SetFontStyle(font, TTF_STYLE_BOLD|TTF_STYLE_ITALIC); // render some text in fake bold italics... // set the loaded font's style back to normal TTF_SetFontStyle(font, TTF_STYLE_NORMAL);
