EditPoint.Cut Method

Copies the specified range of text to the clipboard and deletes it from the document.

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

void Cut(
	Object PointOrCount,
	bool Append
)

Parameters

PointOrCount
Type: System.Object

Required. Either a TextPoint object or a number of characters.

Append
Type: System.Boolean

Optional. Indicates whether to append the selected text to the clipboard. The default is false.

If PointOrCount is a TextPoint object, Cut cuts the text between the edit point and PointOrCount and places it on the clipboard. If PointOrCount is an integer, then Cut cuts the text after the edit point for the specified number of characters following the edit point (adding one for each implied newline sequence at the end of each line). If PointOrCount is negative, then Cut cuts text before the edit point.

If Append is true, then Cut appends the selection to the current clipboard contents rather than replacing it.

Sub CutExample()
   Dim objTextDoc As TextDocument
   Dim objEditPt As EditPoint, iCtr As Integer
        
   ' Create a new text file.
   DTE.ItemOperations.NewFile("General\Text File")
        
   ' Get a handle to the new document and create an EditPoint.
   objTextDoc = DTE.ActiveDocument.Object("TextDocument")
   objEditPt = objTextDoc.StartPoint.CreateEditPoint
       
   ' Insert ten lines of text.
   For iCtr = 1 To 10
      objeditpt.Insert("This is a test." & Chr(13))
   Next iCtr
        
   ' Copies the fourth word of the fourth line and pastes it, 
   ' then cuts the fourth word of the eighth line.
   objEditPt.StartOfDocument()
   objEditPt.LineDown(3)
   objEditPt.WordRight(3)
   objEditPt.Copy(4)
   objEditPt.Paste()
   objEditPt.LineDown(3)
   objEditPt.WordRight(3)
