Gets or sets a value indicating whether automatic word selection is enabled.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
The following code example demonstrates how to create a RichTextBox that zooms in on text, automatically selects words in the text of the control when a word is double-clicked, and has a margin on the right side of the client area of the control. If the RichTextBox control has a small width, using this code will create a RichTextBox where each character of text is displayed on its own line. While in this vertical display position, clicking on any part of a word will select all characters of the word regardless of the fact that the text is displayed vertically. This example requires that you have a form that contains a RichTextBox control named richTextBox1.
Private Sub ZoomMyRichTextBox() ' Enable users to select entire word when double clicked. richTextBox1.AutoWordSelection = True ' Clear contents of control. richTextBox1.Clear() ' Set the right margin to restrict horizontal text. richTextBox1.RightMargin = 2 ' Set the text for the control. richTextBox1.SelectedText = "Alpha Bravo Charlie Delta Echo Foxtrot" ' Zoom by 2 points. richTextBox1.ZoomFactor = 2.0F End Sub
