Return code Description
Value
Meaning
E_INVALIDARG
Invalid argument.
CO_E_RELEASED
The paragraph formatting object is attached to a range that has been deleted.

Remarks

The tab count of a new instance can be nonzero, depending on the underlying text engine. For example, Microsoft Word stories begin with no explicit tabs defined, while rich edit instances start with a single explicit tab. To be sure there are no explicit tabs (that is, to set the tab count to zero), call ITextPara::ClearAllTabs.
