public:
 void MoveToAbsoluteOffset(int Offset);
public:

void MoveToAbsoluteOffset(int Offset);
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(172)]
public void MoveToAbsoluteOffset (int Offset);
abstract member MoveToAbsoluteOffset : int -> unit
Public Sub MoveToAbsoluteOffset (Offset As Integer)
Parameters
Offset
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

Required. A character index from the start of the document, beginning at one.

Examples

Sub MoveToAbsoluteOffsetExample()  
   Dim objTextDoc As TextDocument  
   Dim objEditPt As EditPoint, iCtr As Integer  

   ' Create a new text file.  
   DTE.ItemOperations.NewFile("General\Text File")  

   ' Get a handle to the new document and create an EditPoint.  
   objTextDoc = DTE.ActiveDocument.Object("TextDocument")  
   objEditPt = objTextDoc.StartPoint.CreateEditPoint  

   ' Insert ten lines of text.  
   For iCtr = 1 To 10  
      objEditPt.Insert("This is a test." & Chr(13))  
   Next iCtr  
   objEditPt.MoveToAbsoluteOffset(10)  
   objEditPt.Insert("HELLO")  
   objEditPt.MoveToLineAndOffset(4, 5)  
   objEditPt.Insert("WORLD")  
End Sub  

Remarks

This method throws an ArgumentException if the value of Offset is less than 1 or greater than the length of the file. To find the length of the file, get the AbsoluteCharOffset of EndPoint.

Warning

All newline characters or sequences count as a single character for the purposes of this property. For example, the newline denoted in Visual Basic by vbCrLf (carriage return + line feed) counts as a single character.
