I have a free-form style datawindow that displays only one record.  There are two fields in the datawindow: report and name.  Both fields are retrieved from the database.  These are not text boxes or edit boxes.  Both fields are editable and enabled and have tab values assigned.
How do I highlight the report field (selecting all text inside) using powerscript?

//Make it the current column
dw_1.SetColumn("report")

// Then select the text
dw_1.SelectText(1,N)  // where N is the length of the column

It turns out that SelectText is not necessary to highlight the text because just using SetColumn would highlight the entire text.  I suppose SelectText is used so that SelectedText can be applied.
Thanks.
