Hi Everyone,
I'm trying to create a method by which the first word in a line (or row) of text is selected in a textbox if you enter a line (or row) number in another textbox and click a button.
Can anyone help me with this ?

So, TextBox or DevExpress.XtraRichEdit?! Don't confuse!

DevExpress.XtraRichEdit perferably. I know it's a third party control so that is why I asked for a Text version, to make it more accross the board.

Did you try the winforms rich text box?

Yes, I'm trying to convert the project to the DevExpress.XtraRichEdit Control due to a project I'm creating. I need the functionality of the DevExpress.XtraRichEdit control instead of the Standard RichText Box. Unfortunately they forgot to add some basic methods.

You can use the SelectionStart property as demonstrated here[^] to select text in the first text box once the button click event fires.
