Unable to Select All (Ctrl-A) in an Edit Control Box

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone know why I can't select all text using Ctrl-A in an Edit Control? I can right-click and choose "Select All" from the menu, but Ctrl-A doesn't select any text.

The attached script will create a single Edit Control box so you can see the problem first-hand:

Thanks for any assistance on this.

Selecting all text with Ctrl-A is not an inherent behavior of Edit controls (usually it's just a menu shortcut for "Select All"), but you can easily program it with HotKeySet and the GUIEdit UDFs in the beta version. Type some text into the edit box in the attached script and try it out.
