Hi thenrich;

        Dim insertThisText As String = " Hello World "
        TextBox1.Text = TextBox1.Text.Insert(TextBox1.SelectionStart, insertThisText)

try this

TextBox1.Text = TextBox1.Text.Substring(0, TextBox1.SelectionStart) & "Add " & TextBox1.Text.Substring(TextBox1.SelectionStart)

Dim inStr As String = "This how"
        Dim modStr As String = " is"
        Dim endStr As String

        endStr = inStr.Insert(4, modStr)

Too Slow!

Hi thenrich;

The above code will insert text into TextBox1 where the text insertion point is in the text box, not where the cursor is. So you will need to click to set the insertion point..
