EditPoint2.GreaterThan(TextPoint) EditPoint2.GreaterThan(TextPoint) EditPoint2.GreaterThan(TextPoint) EditPoint2.GreaterThan(TextPoint) EditPoint2.GreaterThan(TextPoint) EditPoint2.GreaterThan(TextPoint) Method

Definition

Returns whether the value of the EditPoint object's AbsoluteCharOffset property is greater than that of the given TextPoint object.

public:
 bool GreaterThan(EnvDTE::TextPoint ^ Point);
public:
 bool GreaterThan(EnvDTE::TextPoint ^ Point);
bool GreaterThan(EnvDTE::TextPoint const & Point);
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(33)]
public bool GreaterThan (EnvDTE.TextPoint Point);
abstract member GreaterThan : EnvDTE.TextPoint -> bool
Public Function GreaterThan (Point As TextPoint) As Boolean
Parameters
Point
TextPoint TextPoint TextPoint TextPoint TextPoint TextPoint

Required. A TextPoint to compare to the calling point object.

Returns

true if Point has a smaller AbsoluteCharOffset property value compared to the calling EditPoint object's AbsoluteCharOffset property; otherwise, false.

Remarks

GreaterThan throws a ArgumentException exception if Point is not in the same document as the calling point object. With the VirtualPoint, GreaterThan compares the virtual positions if the argument is a VirtualPoint, otherwise it compares the physical positions.
