The IAccessible::get_accValue method retrieves the value of the specified object. Not all objects have a value.

HRESULT get_accValue(
VARIANTvarID,BSTR* pszValue);


  • varID
    [in] Specifies whether the value information retrieved is that of the object or of one of the object's child elements. This parameter is either CHILDID_SELF (to obtain information about the object) or a child ID (to obtain information about the object's child element). For more information about initializing the VARIANT structure, see How Child IDs Are Used in Parameters.
  • pszValue
    [out, retval] Address of the BSTR that receives a localized string that contains the object's current value.

Return Values

If successful, returns S_OK.

If not successful, returns one of the following values or another standard COM error code. Although servers return these values, clients must always check output parameters to ensure that they contain valid values. For more information, see Checking IAccessible Return Values.

Error Description

They are integers between zero (0) and one hundred (100), inclusive, but might also be a limited range for example, between one (1) and sixteen (16). Also, some scroll bar and trackbar objects return strings that correspond to settings such as screen size or Internet security.
