Confidence measure/score for Boosting

I am testing various Boosting methods implemented in OpenCV. Apart for the prediction result itself, I could use some measure of prediction confidence. Can I get not only the class corresponding to the highest probability, but also this probability? I saw there is parameter returnSum to the function CvBoost::predict(). Is it a good measure for this probability?

Thanks!
