EditPoint Interface

Allows you to manipulate text as data in text buffers.

Namespace: EnvDTE
Assembly: EnvDTE (in envdte.dll)

[GuidAttribute("C1FFE800-028B-4475-A907-14F51F19BB7D")] 
public interface EditPoint : TextPoint
/** @attribute GuidAttribute("C1FFE800-028B-4475-A907-14F51F19BB7D") */ 
public interface EditPoint extends TextPoint
GuidAttribute("C1FFE800-028B-4475-A907-14F51F19BB7D") 
public interface EditPoint extends TextPoint

EditPoint objects are similar to TextSelection objects, except that they operate on data in the text buffer rather than on text displayed in a code editor. The difference is that text in the buffer is not affected by global editor states, such as word wrapping and virtual spaces.

Any operation that attempts to modify a text document fails if it affects any characters that are contained in a read-only block, or if the document itself is read-only.

Sub EditPointExample()
  ' Before running this example, open a text document.
  Dim objTD As TextDocument
  Dim objEP As EditPoint

  objTD = DTE.ActiveDocument.Object("TextDocument")
  objEP = objTD.StartPoint.CreateEditPoint
  objEP.Insert "Hello"
End Sub
