IVsTextBuffer.GetSize(Int32) IVsTextBuffer.GetSize(Int32) IVsTextBuffer.GetSize(Int32) IVsTextBuffer.GetSize(Int32) IVsTextBuffer.GetSize(Int32) Method


Returns the size in characters of the buffer.

 int GetSize([Runtime::InteropServices::Out] int % piLength);
int GetSize([Runtime::InteropServices::Out] int & piLength);
public int GetSize (out int piLength);
abstract member GetSize :  -> int
Public Function GetSize (ByRef piLength As Integer) As Integer


Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

[out] Pointer to the size of the buffer, which is not necessarily the same value as the size of the buffer's internally-allocated memory or the size of the file (if any) represented by the buffer.


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


COM Signature

From textmgr.idl:

HRESULT IVsTextBuffer::GetSize(  
   [out] long *piLength  

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.
