Specifies the drawable.
Specifies the connection to the X server.
Specifies the GC.
Specifies the number of characters in the string argument.
Specifies the character string. and define the origin of the first character
Specify the x and y coordinates, which are relative to the origin of the specified drawable.
The effect is first to fill a destination rectangle with the background pixel defined in the GC and then to paint the text with the foreground pixel. The upper-left corner of the filled rectangle is at:
0 0>=40 .vs 0u 0<=39 .vs 0p [x, y - font-ascent]
The width is:
0 0>=40 .vs 0u 0<=39 .vs 0p overall-width
The height is:
0 0>=40 .vs 0u 0<=39 .vs 0p font-ascent + font-descent
The overall-width, font-ascent, and font-descent are as would be returned by XQueryTextExtents using gc and string. The function and fill-style defined in the GC are ignored for these functions. The effective function is GXcopy, and the effective fill-style is FillSolid.
For fonts defined with 2-byte matrix indexing and used with XDrawImageString, each byte is used as a byte2 with a byte1 of zero.
Both functions use these GC components: plane-mask, foreground, background, font, subwindow-mode, clip-x-origin, clip-y-origin, and clip-mask.
XDrawImageString and XDrawImageString16 can generate BadDrawable, BadGC, and BadMatch errors.
