TextPatternRange.RemoveFromSelection Method

Removes a highlighted section of text, corresponding to the calling text range Start and End endpoints, from an existing collection of highlighted text in a text container that supports multiple, disjoint selections.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation.Text
Assembly:  UIAutomationClient (in UIAutomationClient.dll)

public void RemoveFromSelection()


If text provider does not support multiple, disjoint selections (for example, SupportedTextSelection must have a value of Multiple).
