I am messing with the RichTextBox. I click in the box and want to get the cursor position.

Then If someone clicks a button it will insert a string at that position in the RichTextBox.

I dont have any code, just want to do this via the button click event. Can someone give me a sample of how to do this?

I have a function that gets the Index and Line, but is that enough to do what I want?

Private Sub btnInsertText_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnInsertText.Click
        Dim strText = "Automobile"
        'insert Text at current cursor position in the richtextbox.
    End Sub
    Private Sub getRichTextBoxPosition()
        sCursor.intIndex = Me.rtbAmendText.SelectionStart
        sCursor.intLine = Me.rtbAmendText.GetLineFromCharIndex(sCursor.intIndex)
    End Sub
