The GetValue method returns the value of the control. The type of the return value depends on the specific control object.
The value displayed by the control for the data type of the underlying field.
NOTE: GetValue cannot return a literal value input into a control by a user. The method instead returns the value that the user's entry has been stored as, based on the data type of the underlying field.
The GetValue and SetValue methods work only for controls that are associated with business component fields. Therefore, these methods are not applicable to labels.
