Name Type Data Type Description
StartPosition *Input Integer Position in the value that selection starts
Length *Input (Optional) Integer Number of characters to select


The SelectText method sets selection within an edit.
If the cursor is to the left of the first character, the value will be 0.
The most common requirement for Selection handling is completing a value during input. This is managed automatically by the AutoCompleting event.
SelectText is provided for completeness and is unlikely to be required for most development purposes.
