    // Insert 10 lines of text.  
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)  
        point.Insert("This is a test.

Remarks

PadToColumn inserts tabs and spaces, according to global settings, from the edit point's or selection's display column to the specified display column. If the edit point or active end of the selection already lies beyond the specified column, PadToColumn does nothing.
