I am drawing a multiline pango layout to a cairo surface, and I want do
draw a rectangle around that text, giving something
|Line 1 |
|Line two |
|A longer Line|
Propose is something like drawing labels in a graphical layout tool. So
I need exact control over layout, the frame in the example should exact
enclose the logical(or ink) layout.
Indeed, I have already a few working solutions, but I think they work
only by fortune, and may fail with other types of text.
I was not able to find a good exapmle like this one for cairo's toy
I have found this thread from a mailing list, a similar problem,
but I am still not convinced that I understand the correct solution. I
think there should exists really some more simple examples for pango.
