Parameters

start
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The position of the first character in the current text selection within the text box.

length
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The number of characters to select.

Exceptions

The start is less than zero.

-or-

start plus length is less than zero.

Remarks

If you want to set the start position to the first character in the control's text, set the start parameter to zero. You can use this method to select a substring of text, such as when searching through the text of the control and replacing information.

Note

SelectionStart returns the lower value of the current selection. For example, Select(10, -4) selects the text from character position 6 through character position 10. If you now get the SelectionStart value, it will be 6 rather than 10.
