SelStart Property

Indicates the starting point of selected text, or the insertion point if no text is selected. Syntax object. SelStart [= Long ] The SelStart property syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Required. A valid object.
Long Optional. A numeric expression specifying the starting point of text selected. For SelLength and SelStart, the valid range of settings is 0 to the total number of characters in the edit area of a ComboBox or TextBox. The default value is zero.

Remarks The SelStart property is always valid, even when the control does not havefocus. Setting SelStart to a value less than zero creates an error. Attempting to set SelStart to a value greater than the number of characters available in a control results in a value equal to the number of characters in the control. Changing the value of SelStart cancels any existing selection in the control, places an insertion point in the text, and sets the SelLength property to zero.
