How do I highlight text?

CoderBboy asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I have a simple VB app that contains one Command Button and one TextBox.

The TextBox contains the letters "abc".

I would like to have the app "highlight" the "abc" after the user clicks on the Command button.  

When I say "highlight" I mean the same kind of highlighting that occurs when you double-click the mouse inside a normal textbox.
