get_tshape — Get the shape of the text cursor.
get_tshape is obsolete and is only provided for reasons of backward compatibility.
get_tshape queries the shape of the text cursor for the output window. A new cursor shape is set by the operator set_tshape.
A text cursor marks the current position for text output (which can also be invisible). It is different from the mouse cursor (although both will be called ”cursor” if the context makes misconceptions impossible). The available shapes for the text cursor can be queried with query_tshape.
Name of the current text cursor.
get_tshape returns 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if the window is valid. Otherwise an exception is raised.
