KERNINGPAIR info  Overview  Group

The KERNINGPAIR structure defines a kerning pair.

typedef struct tagKERNINGPAIR { // kp 

    WORD  wFirst; 

    WORD  wSecond; 

    int  iKernAmount; 




Specifies the character code for the first character in the kerning pair.
Specifies the character code for the second character in the kerning pair.
Specifies the amount this pair will be kerned if they appear side by side in the same font and size. This value is typically negative, because pair kerning usually results in two characters being set more tightly than normal. The value is given in logical units ¾ that is, it depends on the current mapping mode.
