For the example using a TTF font, see font package in the examples.

Functions

func BoundString

func BoundString(face font.Face, text string) image.Rectangle

BoundString returns the measured size of a given string using a given font. This method will return the exact size in pixels that a string drawn by Draw will be. The bound's origin point indicates the dot (period) position. This means that if the text consists of one character '.', this dot is rendered at (0, 0).

This is very similar to golang.org/x/image/font's BoundString, but this BoundString calculates the actual rendered area considering multiple lines and space characters.

face is the font for text rendering. text is the string that's being measured.

Be careful that the passed font face is held by this package and is never released. This is a known issue (#498).

BoundString is concurrent-safe.

func Draw

func Draw(dst *ebiten.Image, text string, face font.Face, x, y int, clr color.Color)

Draw draws a given text on a given destination image dst.

face is the font for text rendering. (x, y) represents a 'dot' (period) position. This means that if the given text consisted of a single character ".", it would be positioned at the given position (x, y). Be careful that this doesn't represent left-upper corner position.

clr is the color for text rendering.

If you want to adjust the position of the text, these functions are useful:

* text.BoundString:                     the rendered bounds of the given text.
* golang.org/x/image/font.Face.Metrics: the metrics of the face.

The '\n' newline character puts the following text on the next line. Line height is based on Metrics().Height of the font.

Glyphs used for rendering are cached in least-recently-used way. It is OK to call Draw with a same text and a same face at every frame in terms of performance.

Be careful that the passed font face is held by this package and is never released. This is a known issue (#498).

Draw is concurrent-safe.
