ITextServices::TxGetCurTargetX method (textserv.h)

Gets the target x position, that is, the current horizontal position of the caret.

Syntax

HRESULT TxGetCurTargetX(
  LONG *unnamedParam1
);

Parameters

unnamedParam1

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If the x position of the caret is returned, the return value is S_OK.

If the method fails, the return value is the following HRESULT code. For more information on COM error codes, see Error Handling in COM.

Return code Description
E_FAIL
There is no selection.
E_INVALIDARG
The input argument is invalid.

Remarks

Together with ITextServices::OnTxSetCursor, this method allows you to maintain the horizontal caret position when moving the caret up and down. This capability is useful when moving the caret through forms.

The target caret position is expressed as an x-coordinate on the display because other controls do not necessarily share the same attributes for column position.
