Load Image from Font Glyphe
« on: October 22, 2007, 08:31:58 am »
As I will need the ability to create an Image with a single Unicode Glyph on it, I'm asking, if this feature is allready planned or implemented.(I know the FontManager can do this, but the Image itself doesn't provide an interface for that)
If it's not, I would do it with sfml itself so you can easily implement it for 1.2; if you dont wish to implement something like that ever, please tell me as it will make my code better(as I wont hack it into sfml;))

I don't know if it would be an interesting feature to add, as you usually want to use a bitmap font generator for this, instead of your prefered graphics API. Unless you have specific requirements, like having to generate these images real-time.

However, you can still modify SML a bit to add this feature, if you really need it.
But I don't think I'm going to do it in the next versions.
