    VB6 code to VB.net .Selstart and .SelLength

    Here is some code I use to high light a textbox when a user needs to re-enter data into a textbox, it works great in vb6 but not in .Net. Does anyone know what methods I would use in .Net to preform the same action.

    txtname.Setfocus
    txtname.Selstart = 0
    txtname = Len(txtName.Text)



    Thanks

    Its pretty much the same



    txtName.SetFocus
    txtName.SelectionStart = 0
    txtName.SelectionLength = Len(txtName.Text)

    Now there is .TextLength so you do not need to extract the text to a string just to get the length. The temporary string just has to be garbage collected later.

    What is the difference between GotFocus and setFocus?

    You realise this topic is 10 years old? You should start a new thread for any questions you have.

    In any case: GotFocus is an event that you subscribe to.. SetFocus is a method you call.
