IValueProvider::get_Value method

The value of the control.

This property is read-only.

Syntax

HRESULT get_Value(
  BSTR *pRetVal
);

Parameters

pRetVal

Return Value

None

Remarks

Single-line edit controls support programmatic access to their contents by implementing IValueProvider (in addition to ITextProvider). However, multi-line edit controls do not implement IValueProvider.

To retrieve the textual contents of multi-line edit controls, the controls must implement ITextProvider. However, ITextProvider does not support setting the value of a control.

IValueProvider does not support the retrieval of formatting information or substring values. Implement ITextProvider in these scenarios.
