TextPattern Search and Selection Sample
[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
The sample consists of a WPF client and the choice of a FlowDocumentReader (Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)) target or a WordPad (Win32) target. The client uses the TextPattern control pattern class and the TextPatternRange class to interact with the text controls in the target.
The functionality demonstrated by the sample includes the ability to search for and select a string of text within the target, manipulate the existing selections within the target by expanding or contracting them to a specific TextUnit, and navigate forward or backward within the text of the target.
Three WPF documents are provided in the Content folder of the TextProvider project.
This sample demonstrates a specific feature of the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and, consequently, does not follow application development best practices.
