TextPatternRange.Select Method

Highlights text in the text control corresponding to the text range Start and End endpoints.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation.Text
Assembly:  UIAutomationClient (in UIAutomationClient.dll)

public void Select()

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

Occurs when text selection is not supported by the text control.

If a degenerate text range is provided, the text insertion point will move to the Start endpoint of the text range.

    // target --> The root AutomationElement.
    AutomationElement textProvider = target.FindFirst(TreeScope.Descendants, cond);

    TextPattern textpatternPattern = textProvider.GetCurrentPattern(TextPattern.Pattern) as TextPattern;

    if (textpatternPattern == null)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Root element does not contain a descendant that supports TextPattern.");
        return;
    }
