I’m trying to figure out a way to make a ttf string surface with SDL_ttf.
The problem is I needed to cut the string surface if the string is too
long, it will be cut and a new string surface under it will be created. In
other word, I need to implement a word wrap function to it. What I have in
mind is this:
- Render the string
- Check the surface’s dimension (h & w)
- If it’s to long:
3.1. Free the surface
3.2. Cut the last word from the string and push to a new string
3.3. Re-render the string
3.4. Loop to 2
- If not:
4.1. Check if there’s a new string generated from the last string
4.1.1. If there is a new string:
220.127.116.11. Loop to 1
4.1.2. If not:
IMHO, the render, re-render, free loop will take a long time to process.
Is there any other way to solve this elegantly?
Thanks in advance.
Fare thee well,
