WdgAutoSelect

"Autoselect" status of a form field. Indicates whether the content of a form field is automatically "selected" when the form field acquires focus. (For text-entry form fields, WdgAutoSelect and AC (autoclear) are the same.)

Remarks

WdgAutoSelect is not respected when the focus shift into the field occurs as the result of a mouse button press. The reason is that pressing the left mouse button starts a "pending" operation (i.e., selection in entry fields, "arming" in check boxes), and the user's intent is not clear until the button is released and the mouse position checked.
