In Visual Studio 2019 I am trying to select the text in a textbox programmatically. But neither intellisense gives the option of selectionstart or selectionlength nor can I see it in the properties pane. Even if I type it out manually it gives an error.

In the object browser the only items show for selectionstart are shown. Textbox is not part of it.
How can I select the text inside the textbox programatically?
