@defun window-text-pixel-size &optional window from to x-limit y-limit mode-and-header-line
This function returns the size of the text of @var{window}'s buffer in
pixels. @var{window} must be a live window and defaults to the selected
one. The return value is a cons of the maximum pixel-width of any text
line and the maximum pixel-height of all text lines.
The optional argument @var{from}, if non-@code{nil}, specifies the first
text position to consider and defaults to the minimum accessible
position of the buffer. If @var{from} is @code{t}, it uses the minimum
accessible position that is not a newline character. The optional
argument @var{to}, if non-@code{nil}, specifies the last text position
to consider and defaults to the maximum accessible position of the
buffer. If @var{to} is @code{t}, it uses the maximum accessible
position that is not a newline character.
pixels. @var{window} must be a live window and defaults to the
selected one. The return value is a cons of the maximum pixel-width
of any text line and the maximum pixel-height of all text lines. This
function exists to allow Lisp programs to adjust the dimensions of
@var{window} to the buffer text it needs to display.
The optional argument @var{from}, if non-@code{nil}, specifies the
first text position to consider, and defaults to the minimum
accessible position of the buffer. If @var{from} is @code{t}, it
stands for the minimum accessible position that is not a newline
character. The optional argument @var{to}, if non-@code{nil},
specifies the last text position to consider, and defaults to the
maximum accessible position of the buffer. If @var{to} is @code{t},
it stands for the maximum accessible position that is not a newline
character.
The optional argument @var{x-limit}, if non-@code{nil}, specifies the
maximum pixel-width that can be returned. @var{x-limit} @code{nil} or
omitted, means to use the pixel-width of @var{window}'s body
(@pxref{Window Sizes}); this is useful when the caller does not intend
to change the width of @var{window}. Otherwise, the caller should
specify here the maximum width @var{window}'s body may assume. Text
whose x-coordinate is beyond @var{x-limit} is ignored. Since
maximum X coordinate beyond which text should be ignored; it is
therefore also the largest value of pixel-width that the function can
return. If @var{x-limit} @code{nil} or omitted, it means to use the
pixel-width of @var{window}'s body (@pxref{Window Sizes}); this
default means that text of truncated lines wider than the window will
be ignored. This default is useful when the caller does not intend to
change the width of @var{window}. Otherwise, the caller should
specify here the maximum width @var{window}'s body may assume; in
particular, if truncated lines are expected and their text needs to be
accounted for, @var{x-limit} should be set to a large value. Since
calculating the width of long lines can take some time, it's always a
good idea to make this argument as small as needed; in particular, if
the buffer might contain long lines that will be truncated anyway.
The optional argument @var{y-limit}, if non-@code{nil}, specifies the
maximum pixel-height that can be returned. Text lines whose
y-coordinate is beyond @var{y-limit} are ignored. Since calculating the
pixel-height of a large buffer can take some time, it makes sense to
specify this argument; in particular, if the caller does not know the
size of the buffer.
maximum Y coordinate beyond which text is to be ignored; it is
therefore also the maximum pixel-height that the function can return.
If @var{y-limit} is nil or omitted, it means to considers all the
lines of text till the buffer position specified by @var{to}. Since
calculating the pixel-height of a large buffer can take some time, it
makes sense to specify this argument; in particular, if the caller
does not know the size of the buffer.
The optional argument @var{mode-and-header-line} @code{nil} or omitted
means to not include the height of the mode- or header-line of
