property public
Vcl.StdCtrls TCustomComboBox


Represents the selected text in the edit region.

Read SelText to obtain the text that is selected in the edit region of the combo box. When the combo box is the active control, SelText appears highlighted. Set SelText to replace the current selection with a different substring. If no text is selected when a value is assigned to SelText, the SelText string is inserted in the text at the cursor.

Note: The SelText property is only valid when the combo box has focus. When the combo box does not have focus, reading SelText always yields an empty string and setting it inserts the text at the cursor rather than replacing the selected text.
