Members

The ITextRangeProvider interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. ITextRangeProvider also has these types of members:

Methods

The ITextRangeProvider interface has these methods.

MethodDescription
AddToSelection

Adds the text range to the collection of selected text ranges in a control that supports multiple, disjoint spans of selected text.

Clone

Returns a new ITextRangeProvider identical to the original ITextRangeProvider and inheriting all properties of the original.

Compare

Retrieves a value that specifies whether this text range has the same endpoints as another text range.

CompareEndpoints

Returns a value that specifies whether two text ranges have identical endpoints.

ExpandToEnclosingUnit

Normalizes the text range by the specified text unit. The range is expanded if it is smaller than the specified unit, or shortened if it is longer than the specified unit.

FindAttribute

Returns a text range subset that has the specified text attribute value.

FindText

Returns a text range subset that contains the specified text.

GetAttributeValue

Retrieves the value of the specified text attribute across the text range.

GetBoundingRectangles

Retrieves a collection of bounding rectangles for each fully or partially visible line of text in a text range.

GetChildren

Retrieves a collection of all embedded objects that fall within the text range.

GetEnclosingElement

Returns the innermost element that encloses the text range.

GetText

Retrieves the plain text of the range.

Move

Moves the text range forward or backward by the specified number of text units.

MoveEndpointByRange

Moves one endpoint of the current text range to the specified endpoint of a second text range.

MoveEndpointByUnit

Moves one endpoint of the text range the specified number of TextUnit units within the document range.

RemoveFromSelection

Removes the text range from the collection of selected text ranges in a control that supports multiple, disjoint spans of selected text.

ScrollIntoView

Causes the text control to scroll vertically until the text range is visible in the viewport.

Select

Selects the span of text that corresponds to this text range, and removes any previous selection.

 

Remarks

A range can represent an insertion point, a portion of text, or all of the text in a container.
