How to deselect the text

Hi,
I’m using TextCtrl and initially set some text in it. And all the text
is
selected by default.
How can I deselect it?
By the way, TextCtrl#set_selection() doesn’t work… What am I doing
wrong?

Thanks a lot,
Kirill.

Here’s the sample:

====================== wxtest.rb ===========================
require ‘wx’

class TestFrame < Wx::Frame

def initialize
super(nil, -1, “Test”)
text = Wx::TextCtrl.new(self, -1, “first_line\n”,
:style => Wx::TE_RICH|Wx::TE_RICH2|Wx::TE_MULTILINE)
text.append_text “second line”
text.set_selection(3, 4)
end

end

class TestApp < Wx::App
def on_init
TestFrame.new.show
end
end

TestApp.new.main_loop

Thanks for reporting this and providing a clear test case. I’ve tried it
out and it seems to be a bug, specific to Windows. I was a bit surprised
as I’m fairly sure this used to work.

If you’re able, please could you file this on the bug tracker and attach
your example as a test case. This will be a MUSTFIX for 2.0.

By the way, if you’re using RICH and RICH2 for formatting, you might see
if RichTextCtrl works better for you. TextCtrl + RICH2 has some
cross-platform quirks, although it will be better for accessibility I
guess.

thanks

And it also didn’t work in 1.9.8, I just didn’t pay attention to it at
that
time.

By the way, is it also a bug that the whole text is selected by default?

I’m not sure that I need all the power provided by RichTextCtrl, it
looks
that for my task simple TextCtrl is just fine. But I’ll try, thanks for
pointing to it.

Regards,
Kirill.

Yes, I think so. It doesn’t do this on other platforms.
