Represents a location of text in a text document.
Assembly: EnvDTE (in EnvDTE.dll)
The object allows you to find locations in a document. Using the properties of the object, you can find text with:
Character numbers in a line
Absolute character locations from the beginning of the document
objects are similar to EditPoint objects, except that they operate on text displayed in a code editor rather than data in the text buffer. Text in a document is affected by global editor states, such as word wrapping and virtual spaces, but the text buffer is not.
As you edit a document, objects do not move relative to their surrounding text. That is, if text is inserted before a text point, then the value of its AbsoluteCharOffset property is incremented to reflect its new location further down in the document. If multiple objects are at the same location and an EditPoint object is used to insert new text, then the new characters are to the right of all of the objects except the one used to insert the text.
