Hi Guys,

I am using the editor to display the results of a grep operation running in a background thread.

What I need to do is to have the text results of the grep appended to the editor but when the user selects something in the editor I need the AppendText to continue but without updating the caret (need to leave the user looking at what he/she wants)

Any idea how to accomplish this?

Thanks

John

Hi John,

Use DocumentModificationOptions.RetainSelection when calling AppendText. That should do what you want.

Hi,

Thanks for that I missed the additional parameter.

Works nicely.
