Add date to textbox on Enter-key c#

I was wondering if anyone could help me to get the code to do the following:
1. I have a textbox on the form that contains text
2. I want the program to automatically insert shortDateString to the top of the textbox when a user hits the "Enter"-key on the keyboard.
3. The date is only going to be inserted when the position of cursor is at beginning of textbox text when the enter key is pressed.
4. The user should then be able to start typing text right under the date.

I do not know a better way to explain this. Will try to explain better if it is not understanable.

For C# WinForms:
        private void textBox1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Enter)
            {
                e.Handled = true;
                if (textBox1.SelectionStart == 0 && textBox1.SelectionLength == 0)
                {
                    textBox1.SelectedText = DateTime.Now.ToString("d");
                }
            }
        }

Thanks a bunch. I actually had already tried this before, but I had done a mixup with the selection start... This was exactly what I wanted!
