TextSelection.EndOfLine Method

Moves the object to the end of the current line.

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

void EndOfLine (
	[OptionalAttribute] [InAttribute] bool Extend
void EndOfLine (
	/** @attribute InAttribute() */ /** @attribute OptionalAttribute() */ boolean Extend
function EndOfLine (
	Extend : boolean



Optional. Determines whether the moved text is collapsed or not. The default is false.

If Extend is true, then only the active end of the selected text is moved. Otherwise, the selected text is collapsed and positioned at the end of the document.

Sub EndOfLineExample()
   ' Before running this example, open a text document.
   Dim objSel As TextSelection = DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection
   Dim objActive As VirtualPoint = objSel.ActivePoint
   ' Collapse the selection to the beginning of the line.
   ' objActive is "live", tied to the position of the actual selection, 
   ' so it will reflect the new position.
   Dim iCol As Long = objActive.DisplayColumn
   ' Move the selection to the end of the line.

   MsgBox("The length of the insertion point line is " & (objActive.DisplayColumn - iCol) & " display characters.")
End Sub
