The following definitions are only available if FreeType is compiled on a Macintosh.

FT_New_Face_From_FOND

Defined in FT_MAC_H (freetype/ftmac.h).

  FT_EXPORT( FT_Error )
  FT_New_Face_From_FOND( FT_Library  library,
                         Handle      fond,
                         FT_Long     face_index,
                         FT_Face    *aface )
                       FT_DEPRECATED_ATTRIBUTE;

Create a new face object from a FOND resource.

inout

library

A handle to the library resource.

input

fond

A FOND resource.

face_index

Only supported for the -1 ‘sanity check’ special case.

output

aface

A handle to a new face object.

return

FreeType error code. 0 means success.

notes

This function can be used to create FT_Face objects from fonts that are installed in the system as follows.

  fond = GetResource( 'FOND', fontName );
  error = FT_New_Face_From_FOND( library, fond, 0, &face );

FT_GetFile_From_Mac_Name

Defined in FT_MAC_H (freetype/ftmac.h).

  FT_EXPORT( FT_Error )
  FT_GetFile_From_Mac_Name( const char*  fontName,
                            FSSpec*      pathSpec,
                            FT_Long*     face_index )
                          FT_DEPRECATED_ATTRIBUTE;

Return an FSSpec for the disk file containing the named font.

input

fontName

Mac OS name of the font (e.g., Times New Roman Bold).

output

pathSpec

FSSpec to the file. For passing to FT_New_Face_From_FSSpec.

face_index

Index of the face. For passing to FT_New_Face_From_FSSpec.

return

FreeType error code. 0 means success.


FT_GetFile_From_Mac_ATS_Name

Defined in FT_MAC_H (freetype/ftmac.h).

  FT_EXPORT( FT_Error )
  FT_GetFile_From_Mac_ATS_Name( const char*  fontName,
                                FSSpec*      pathSpec,
                                FT_Long*     face_index )
                              FT_DEPRECATED_ATTRIBUTE;

Return an FSSpec for the disk file containing the named font.

input

fontName

Mac OS name of the font in ATS framework.

output

pathSpec

FSSpec to the file. For passing to FT_New_Face_From_FSSpec.

face_index

Index of the face. For passing to FT_New_Face_From_FSSpec.

return

FreeType error code. 0 means success.


FT_GetFilePath_From_Mac_ATS_Name

Defined in FT_MAC_H (freetype/ftmac.h).

  FT_EXPORT( FT_Error )
  FT_GetFilePath_From_Mac_ATS_Name( const char*  fontName,
                                    UInt8*       path,
                                    UInt32       maxPathSize,
                                    FT_Long*     face_index )
                                  FT_DEPRECATED_ATTRIBUTE;

Return a pathname of the disk file and face index for given font name that is handled by ATS framework.

input

fontName

Mac OS name of the font in ATS framework.

output

path

Buffer to store pathname of the file. For passing to FT_New_Face. The client must allocate this buffer before calling this function.

maxPathSize

Lengths of the buffer ‘path’ that client allocated.

face_index

Index of the face. For passing to FT_New_Face.

return

FreeType error code. 0 means success.


FT_New_Face_From_FSSpec

Defined in FT_MAC_H (freetype/ftmac.h).

  FT_EXPORT( FT_Error )
  FT_New_Face_From_FSSpec( FT_Library     library,
                           const FSSpec  *spec,
                           FT_Long        face_index,
                           FT_Face       *aface )
                         FT_DEPRECATED_ATTRIBUTE;

Create a new face object from a given resource and typeface index using an FSSpec to the font file.

inout

library

A handle to the library resource.

input

spec

FSSpec to the font file.

face_index

The index of the face within the resource. The first face has index 0.

output

aface

A handle to a new face object.

return

FreeType error code. 0 means success.

note

FT_New_Face_From_FSSpec is identical to FT_New_Face except it accepts an FSSpec instead of a path.


FT_New_Face_From_FSRef

Defined in FT_MAC_H (freetype/ftmac.h).

  FT_EXPORT( FT_Error )
  FT_New_Face_From_FSRef( FT_Library    library,
                          const FSRef  *ref,
                          FT_Long       face_index,
                          FT_Face      *aface )
                        FT_DEPRECATED_ATTRIBUTE;

Create a new face object from a given resource and typeface index using an FSRef to the font file.

inout

library

A handle to the library resource.

input

spec

FSRef to the font file.

face_index

The index of the face within the resource. The first face has index 0.

output

aface

A handle to a new face object.

return

FreeType error code. 0 means success.

note

FT_New_Face_From_FSRef is identical to FT_New_Face except it accepts an FSRef instead of a path.
