Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Hi zkac050,

    You might try to use Selection.setFocus; and then Selection.setSelection();

    the thing is , the selection only allows you to select one highlighted but when i tried to do multiple selections, it would only highlight the last selection. Is there any way to do multiple selections?

  5. #5
    only one selection at a time

  6. #6
    damn, then there is no way of selecting more than one
