IVsTextBuffer.GetLineIndexOfPosition(Int32, Int32, Int32) IVsTextBuffer.GetLineIndexOfPosition(Int32, Int32, Int32) IVsTextBuffer.GetLineIndexOfPosition(Int32, Int32, Int32) IVsTextBuffer.GetLineIndexOfPosition(Int32, Int32, Int32) IVsTextBuffer.GetLineIndexOfPosition(Int32, Int32, Int32) Method

Definition

Returns the line and column numbers in the text buffer, given a position number.

public:
 int GetLineIndexOfPosition(int iPosition, [Runtime::InteropServices::Out] int % piLine, [Runtime::InteropServices::Out] int % piColumn);
int GetLineIndexOfPosition(int iPosition, [Runtime::InteropServices::Out] int & piLine, [Runtime::InteropServices::Out] int & piColumn);
public int GetLineIndexOfPosition (int iPosition, out int piLine, out int piColumn);
abstract member GetLineIndexOfPosition : int *  *  -> int
Public Function GetLineIndexOfPosition (iPosition As Integer, ByRef piLine As Integer, ByRef piColumn As Integer) As Integer

Parameters

iPosition
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

[in] Position number of the desired line.

piLine
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

[out] Pointer to the line number.

piColumn
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

[out] Pointer to the column position on the line.

Returns

If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If it fails, it returns an error code.

Remarks

COM Signature

From textmgr.idl:

HRESULT IVsTextBuffer::GetLineIndexOfPosition(  
   [in] long iPosition,  
   [out] long *piLine,  
   [out] CharIndex *piColumn  
);  

This method might require considerable resources, depending upon the underlying implementation of the buffer. That is, it might be very difficult to calculate the size of the buffer if it is a virtual-line-oriented implementation as in Visual Basic.
