CTTextTabMBS class

Super class: CFObjectMBS

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
class CoreText MBS MacCG Plugin 14.2 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: The CTTextTab opaque type represents a tab in a paragraph style, storing an alignment type and location.
Core Text supports four alignment types: left, center, right, and decimal. These alignment types are absolute, not based on the line sweep direction of text. For example, tabbed text is always positioned to the left of a right-aligned tab, whether the line sweep direction is left to right or right to left. A tab's location, on the other hand, is relative to the back margin. A tab set at 1.5 inches, for example, is at 1.5 inches from the right in right-to-left text.
