This template (and its associated code templates) has been deprecated, and is now replaced by the RTF Text Control template.
The SelectTextRTF code template is used to select a specific set of characters by character position. The text is highlighted when it is selected. This template calls the SelectText method. The SelectText method takes two parameters, the starting and ending positions or variables.
SelectText( StartPos, EndPos )
Example method calls:
!Select text from position 1 to 20
oRTF_RTFTextBox.SelectText( 1, 20 )
!Select text from variable positions
oRTF_RTFTextBox.SelectText( loc:startpos, loc:endpos )
