    How can I get the cursor position in a multiline textbox.
    I want to programatically enter text at the cursor position

    Thanks

    Textbox.SelectionStart sets and returns the cursor position in the string in the text box. Identifying the cursor as line number and position in line is not easily done.

    Turns out its quit easy
    Code:
    i = TextEdit.SelectionStart
     TextEdit.Text  = StrInsert(TextEdit.Text,i,
    "[]")
     TextEdit.SelectionStart = i + 
    1
     TextEdit.ScrollToCaret
