# Function:s2qtxtxy

## s2qtxtxy

Find the bounding box of text drawn with s2textxy.

## Prototype

```void s2qtxtxy(float *x1, float *x2, float *y1, float *y2,float x, float y, float z, char *text, float pad); ```

## Description

Find the bounding box of text drawn with the s2textxy function. For convenience, pad can be given > 0.0 to obtain padding around the text of pad percent.

 s2textxy Draw text in the xy plane at a fixed z coordinate. s2textxyf Draw flipped text in the xy plane at a fixed z coordinate. s2qtxtxyf Find the bounding box of text drawn with s2textxyf.

## Code Example

```#include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include "s2plot.h" int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { float x = 0.0; float y = 0.5; float z = 0.2; float x1,x2, y1,y2; /* Bounding coordinates */ char string[32] = "S2PLOT is great!"; float pad = 0.5; /* Padding around text */ s2opend("/?",argc, argv); /* Open the display */ s2swin(-1.,1., -1.,1., -1.,1.); /* Set the window coordinates */ s2box("BCDET",0,0,"BCDET",0,0,"BCDET",0,0); /* Draw coordinate box */ s2sci(S2_PG_YELLOW); s2slw(2); /* Set line width */ s2textxy(x,y,z,string); /* Write some text in x-y plane */ s2qtxtxy(&x1,&x2, &y1,&y2, x,y,z, string, pad); /* Query bounding box for text */ s2sci(S2_PG_GREEN); s2rectxy(x1,x2, y1,y2, z-0.01); /* Draw bounding rectangle */ s2show(1); /* Open the s2plot window */ return 1; } ```
