TextSelection.LineDown Method

Moves the insertion point of the text selection down the specified number of lines.

Namespace: EnvDTE
Assembly: EnvDTE (in envdte.dll)

void LineDown (
	[OptionalAttribute] [InAttribute] bool Extend,
	[OptionalAttribute] [InAttribute] int Count
void LineDown (
	/** @attribute InAttribute() */ /** @attribute OptionalAttribute() */ boolean Extend, 
	/** @attribute InAttribute() */ /** @attribute OptionalAttribute() */ int Count
function LineDown (
	Extend : boolean, 
	Count : int



Optional. Determines whether the line in which the insertion point is moved is highlighted. The default is false.


Optional. Indicates how many lines down to move the insertion point. The default value is 1.

LineDown moves the insertion point of the selected text up Count number of lines from its current position. If Extend is true, then the new line is highlighted after the insertion point is moved. If the beginning of the document is encountered before Count lines, then the position remains at the beginning of the document.

LineDown tries to match the display column from the line of origin to the target line, rounding down a character position, if necessary, if it ends up in the middle of a tab on the target line.

If the value of Count is negative, then LineDown performs like the LineUp method.

Sub LineUpExample()
   ' Before running this example, open a text document containing
   ' at least 5 lines of text.
   Dim objSel As TextSelection = DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection
   ' Go to fourth line in document and then move down one line.
   objSel.GotoLine(4, False)
   objSel.LineDown(True, 1)
End Sub
