Type: long*

The count of characters added to the range. The value can be null.

Remarks

For example, if an insertion point is at the beginning, the end, or within a word, ITextRange::Expand expands the range to include that word. If the range already includes one word and part of another, ITextRange::Expand expands the range to include both words. ITextRange::Expand expands the range to include the visible portion of the range's story.
