EM_REPLACESEL Overview  Group

An application sends an EM_REPLACESEL message to replace the current selection in an edit control with the specified text.


fCanUndo = (BOOL) wParam ;        // flag that specifies whether replacement can be undone 

lpszReplace = (LPCTSTR) lParam ;  // pointer to replacement text string 



Value of wParam. Specifies whether the replacement operation can be undone. If this is TRUE, the operation can be undone. If this is FALSE , the operation cannot be undone.
Value of lParam. Points to a null-terminated string containing the replacement text.

Return Values

This message does not return a value.


Use the EM_REPLACESEL message to replace only a portion of the text in an edit control. To replace all of the text, use the WM_SETTEXT message.

If there is no current selection, the replacement text is inserted at the current location of the caret.
