Declaration

Source position: stdctrls.pp line 845

public procedure TCustomEdit.SelectAll; virtual;

Description

SelectAll is a procedure used to select all of the text content in the edit box for the control.

SelectAll checks the value in Text to ensure that content is available for the selection. No actions are performed in the method when Text is an empty string ('').

When Text is not empty, the values in SelStart and SelLength are updated to use the content in Text starting at the first UTF-8-encoded character. UTF8Length is called to get the length for Text, and the value stored in SelLength.
