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

'Declaration
Public Sub 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.
