DisplayColumn Property (General Extensibility)

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Returns the number of the current displayed column containing the object.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public ReadOnly Property DisplayColumn() As Long
[Visual Basic 6]
Property Get DisplayColumn() As Long
HRESULT __stdcall get_DisplayColumn(
   /* [out, retval] */ long* retVal
int DisplayColumn {get;}
[JScript .NET]
public function get DisplayColumn() : int


The column numbering starts at one. The display column may be different from the value of the LineCharOffset Property (General Extensibility) if the line contains tab characters. DisplayColumn uses the global setting for tab size to determine the displayed column.


Sub DisplayColumnExample()
   Dim objTextDoc As TextDocument
   Dim objTP As TextPoint, iCtr As Integer
   Dim msg As String

   ' Create a new text file.
   DTE.ItemOperations.NewFile("General\Text File")

   ' Get a handle to the new document and create an EditPoint.
   objTextDoc = DTE.ActiveDocument.Object("TextDocument")
   objTP = objTextDoc.StartPoint.CreateEditPoint

   ' Insert ten lines of text.
   For iCtr = 1 To 10
      objTP.Insert("This is a test." & Chr(13))
   Next iCtr

   ' Capitalize the third word of the second line
   msg = "DisplayColumn value: " & objTP.DisplayColumn & vbCr
   msg = msg & "Line value: " & objTP.Line & vbCr
   msg = msg & "LineCharOffset value: " & objTP.LineCharOffset & vbCr
   msg = msg & "LineLength value: " & objTP.LineLength & vbCr
End Sub
