Question

Selection not collapsing

Posted 10 years ago by Avatar Stephen Curle
If I select text and then left click with the mouse pointer over the selected text the selection is not collapsing. Is this behaviour deliberate or is there some property I can set so that the selection will collapse. Note that the selection collapses if I click on an area of code that isn't selected.

Hi Stephen,

It's working ok here when I test. Note that if you are moving the mouse when clicking it may think you are trying to start a drag. But if you keep it relatively still when clicking, it should deselect.

Also note that if the SyntaxEditor doesn't have focus when you click in the selection, it will focus the control but not collapse the selection. Clicking the selection while SyntaxEditor has focus will collapse the selection.
