Returns the number of characters in the string referenced by a list of arguments.
int _vscprintf( const char *format, va_list argptr ); int _vscwprintf( const wchar_t *format, va_list argptr );
- Format-control string.
- Pointer to list of arguments.
For more information, see Format Specifications.
- _vscprintf returns the number of characters that would be generated if the string pointed to by the list of arguments was printed or sent to a file or buffer using the specified formatting codes. The value returned does not include the terminating null character. _vscwprintf performs the same function for wide characters.
Each argument (if any) is converted according to the corresponding format specification in format. The format consists of ordinary characters and has the same form and function as the format argument for printf.
Security Note Ensure that format is not a user-defined string. For more information, see Avoiding Buffer Overruns.
