Method

Gtk.TextIter.backward_lines

Declaration [src]

gboolean
gtk_text_iter_backward_lines (
  GtkTextIter* iter,
  int count
)

Description [src]

Moves count lines backward, if possible.

If count would move past the start or end of the buffer, moves to the start or end of the buffer.

The return value indicates whether the iterator moved onto a dereferenceable position; if the iterator didn’t move, or moved onto the end iterator, then FALSE is returned. If count is 0, the function does nothing and returns FALSE. If count is negative, moves forward by 0 - count lines.

Parameters

count int
 

number of lines to move backward

Return value

Returns: gboolean

whether iter moved and is dereferenceable
