Instance Method

select(withFrame:in:editor:delegate:start:length:)

Selects the specified text range in the cell's field editor.

Declaration

func select(withFrame rect: NSRect, in controlView: NSView, editor textObj: NSText, delegate: Any?, start selStart: Int, length selLength: Int)

Parameters

aRect

The bounding rectangle of the cell.

controlView

The control that manages the cell.

textObj

The field editor to use for editing the cell.

anObject

The object to use as a delegate for the field editor (textObj parameter). This delegate object receives various NSText delegation and notification methods during the course of editing the cell's contents.

selStart

The start of the text selection.

selLength

The length of the text range.

Discussion

This method is similar to edit(withFrame:in:editor:delegate:event:), except that it can be invoked in any situation, not only on a mouse-down event. This method returns without doing anything if controlView, textObj, or the receiver is nil, or if the receiver has no font set for it.
