Example

Sub BottomPointExample()
    ' Before running this example, open a text document.
    Dim objSel As TextSelection = DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection
    If objSel.IsEmpty Then

        ' the insertion point. We begin by selecting the word before the 
        ' insertion point.

            ' We can continue only if the selection was not already at the 
            ' beginning of the document.
            Dim strBefore As String = objSel.Text

            ' The text is saved in strBefore; now delete it and move past 
            ' the following word.
            objSel.Delete()
            objSel.WordRight(True)
            If objSel.Text.StartsWith(" ") Or objSel.Text.StartsWith(Microsoft.VisualBasic.ControlChars.Tab) Then
                ' The previous call to WordRight may have skipped some 
                ' white space instead of an actual word. In that case, we 
                ' should call it again.
                objSel.WordRight(True)
            End If

            ' Insert the new text at the end of the selection.
