How to mark Text in a TEdit ?
My program fills in some Edits automatically with POSSIBLE Text-Data. So how to automatically mark up/highlight this Text, that the User may delete it easily if it does not match ?

you could also use SelStart and SelLength

I think you cannot select all edit controls if you don't have th focus on it.....
