Used on Mac OS only.
Contains information required by the window field of an NPWindow structure.
typedef struct NP_Port
CGrafPtr port; /* Grafport */
int32 portx; /* position inside the topmost window */
The data structure has the following fields:
Standard Mac OS port into which the plug-in should draw.
Top-left corner of the plug-in rectangle in port coordinates (taking the scroll position into account).
On Mac OS, the window field of an NPWindow structure points to an NP_Port object, which is allocated by the browser. The NP_Port is valid for the lifetime of the NPWindow, that is, until NPP_SetWindow is called again with a different value or the instance is destroyed.
Since the port is shared between the plug-in and other plug-ins and the browser, the plug-in should always do the following:
- Draw only within the area designated by the NPWindow.
- Save the current port settings before changing the port for drawing.
- Set the desired port settings before drawing.
- Restore the previous port settings after drawing.
