int GetItemText( 
   int nItem, 
   int nSubItem, 
   LPTSTR lpszText, 
   int nLen  
) const; 
CString GetItemText(

) const;


The index of the item whose text is to be retrieved.


Specifies the subitem whose text is to be retrieved.


Pointer to a string that is to receive the item text.


Length of the buffer pointed to by lpszText.

The version returning int returns the length of the retrieved string.

The version returning a CString returns the item text.

If nSubItem is zero, this function retrieves the item label; if nSubItem is nonzero, it retrieves the text of the subitem. For more information on the subitem argument, see the discussion of the LVITEM structure in the Windows SDK.
