[webkit-dev] Reading from Object

I think my issue some kind of lack of knowledge in C++. I'm trying to redesign the the text placement engine in webkit. For my purpose I need to get access to font face which is stored in the place I mentioned. I know that they are private but I want to read them, and I know it is possible to do so.

What are you trying to do here? Clearly, all member variables are private here so you shouldn't be accessing directly by "m_fontlist.m_ptr->m_cachePrimarySimpleFontData->m_platformData.m_face".

I don't know much about the rendering engine but perhaps other contributors can help you out if you give us more context in which you're trying to do this.

In RenderBlockLineLayout.cpp, I'm trying to read face of the font from pointer to a structure named f below:
