Examples

Sub EditPointExample()  
  ' Before running this example, open a text document.  
  Dim objTD As TextDocument  
  Dim objEP As EditPoint  

  objTD = DTE.ActiveDocument.Object("TextDocument")  
  objEP = objTD.StartPoint.CreateEditPoint  
  objEP.Insert "Hello"  
End Sub  

Remarks

EditPoint objects are similar to TextSelection objects, except that they operate on data in the text buffer rather than on text displayed in a code editor. The difference is that text in the buffer is not affected by global editor states, such as word wrapping and virtual spaces.

Any operation that attempts to modify a text document fails if it affects any characters that are contained in a read-only block, or if the document itself is read-only.

Properties

AbsoluteCharOffset

Gets the one-based character offset of the EditPoint object.

AtEndOfLine

Gets a value indicating whether or not the object is at the end of a line.

AtStartOfDocument

Gets a value indicating whether or not the object is at the beginning of the document.

AtStartOfLine

Gets a value indicating whether or not the EditPoint object is at the beginning of a line.

CodeElement[vsCMElement]

Gets the code element at the EditPoint location.

DisplayColumn

Gets the number of the column number of the EditPoint object.

DTE

Gets the top-level extensibility object.

Line

Gets the EditPoint object's line number.

LineCharOffset

Gets the character offset of the EditPoint object.

LineLength

Gets the number of characters in a line.

Parent

Gets the immediate parent object of the EditPoint object.
