Selects specified columns in the command window
View list of data type meanings
long SetCommandSelection(long First, long Last);
Lets you select text in the command window. This is intended for specialized applications like a spell checker where, after finding a spelling mistake, you select the misspelt word.
First - the first character to select (1-relative), so the first character is 1.
If "First" is zero, then any selection is removed.
Last - the last character to select (1-relative).
If "Last" is -1 then the rest of the line is selected.
Thus, to select everything, make First = 1 and Last = -1.
To put the cursor between characters, specify them backwards. See the example below.
SetCommandSelection (2, 4) --> select characters 2 to 4
SetCommandSelection (0, 0) --> select nothing
SetCommandSelection (1, -1) --> select everything
SetCommandSelection (10, -1) --> select column 10 onwards
SetCommandSelection (6, 5) --> put the cursor between column 5 and column 6
If you want to *get* the current selection in the command window, use GetInfo(236) (first character) and GetInfo(237) (last character).
Available in MUSHclient version 4.38 onwards.
SetCommandSelection 2, 4
world.SetCommandSelection (2, 4);
$world->SetCommandSelection (2, 4);
world.SetCommandSelection (2, 4)
