    Gets the text from the specified location. The length argument specifies the number of screen bytes to get. In SBCS, the number of screen bytes is the same as that of the ScreenCharacter objects. In DBCS, the two numbers can be different. If the last byte is only one half byte of a DBCS character, the last byte is not returned.
