AXISINFOA structure (wingdi.h)

The AXISINFO structure contains information about an axis of a multiple master font.

Syntax

typedef struct tagAXISINFOA {
  LONG axMinValue;
  LONG axMaxValue;
  BYTE axAxisName[MM_MAX_AXES_NAMELEN];
} AXISINFOA, *PAXISINFOA, *LPAXISINFOA;

Members

axMinValue

The minimum value for this axis.

axMaxValue

The maximum value for this axis.

axAxisName

The name of the axis, specified as an array of characters.

Remarks

The AXISINFO structure contains the name of an axis in a multiple master font and also the minimum and maximum possible values for the axis. The length of the name is MM_MAX_AXES_NAMELEN, which equals 16. An application queries these values before setting its desired values in the DESIGNVECTOR array.

The PostScript Open Type Font does not support multiple master functionality.

For the ANSI version of this structure, axAxisName must be an array of bytes.

Note

The wingdi.h header defines AXISINFO as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
