View.SelectText method (XPathNavigator)

Selects the text contained in an editable control that is bound to the node specified by the XPathNavigator object passed to this method.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.InfoPath
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.InfoPath (in Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.dll)

public abstract void SelectText(
	XPathNavigator xmlNode
)

Parameters

xmlNode
Type: System.Xml.XPath.XPathNavigator

An object that specifies the text to select.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The SelectText method was called from an event handler for the Loading event.

ArgumentNullException

The parameter passed to this method is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentException

The parameter passed to this method is not valid. For example, it is of the wrong type or format.

If the specified text is bound to more than one control in the view, using this SelectText method will raise an exception. To avoid this, you must use the SelectText(XPathNavigator, String) method which allows you to specify the ViewContext identifier of the control that contains the text you want to select.

In addition, if the argument to the SelectText method is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or is not exposed in the view, then the SelectText method will also raise an exception.

This member can be accessed only by forms running in the same domain as the currently open form, or by forms that have been granted cross-domain permissions.

This type or member can be accessed from code running in forms opened in Microsoft InfoPath Filler or in a Web browser.

In the following example, the SelectText(xmlNode) method is used to select the text in field1.

// Create XPathNavigator and select field.
XPathNavigator textNode = 
   CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode(
   "/my:myFields/my:field1", NamespaceManager);

// Select text in specified field.
CurrentView.SelectText(textNode);
