EditPoint2 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
