Selects a range of text in the editable portion of the ComboBox.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public void Select (
	int start,
	int length
)
public void Select (
	int start, 
	int length
)
public function Select (
	start : int, 
	length : int
)

Parameters

start

The position of the first character in the current text selection within the text box.

length

The number of characters to select.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentException

The start is less than zero.

-or-

start plus length is less than zero.

If you want to set the start position to the first character in the control's text, set the start parameter to zero. You can use this method to select a substring of text, such as when searching through the text of the control and replacing information.

NoteNote

SelectionStart returns the lower value of the current selection. For example, Select(10, -4) selects the text from character position 6 through character position 10. If you now get the SelectionStart value, it will be 6 rather than 10.
