#include "ltwrappr.h"

static L_INT LVectorDialog::GetString(uString, pString)

Gets the current string for the specified index.


L_UINT32 uString

Index into a list of strings. For a list of the strings, refer to Dialog Strings.

L_TCHAR * pString

Pointer to the buffer to be updated with the current string.


Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


Before calling this function, call LVectorDialog::GetStringLen to get the length of the text you want to retrieve.

Use LVectorDialog::SetString to modify the automated menu item.

Before calling this function, you must declare a variable as a pointer to a character string. Then, pass the variable in the pString parameter. This function will update the variable with the character string at the given index.
