Highlighting Text

Highlighting Text

Is there an API function that will highlight a word in a textbox the way the find command does without using the clipboard?

Set the SelStart property of the text box = character index you want to start at, and then set the SelLength property equal to the length of the string you want to highlight. That will highlight the text that is in the box.
