Thread Move Cursor to after Text in TEdit

I have a ReadOnly TEdit, I will allow the user to change the content after answering Yes to a MessageDilalog.

In Delphi I would use SelLength, but it is not in EWB. After setting the TEdit to ReadOnly := false I use the SelectNone to turn of the selection, but I can't get the cursor inside the edit box, not even with SetFocus.

if (DlgResult=mrYes) then
     begin
        LNameEd.ReadOnly := False;
        LNameEd.SelectNone;
        LNameEd.SetFocus;
     end;

I found that after this the foucs must be on the web form, if I hit the BackSpace key the browser goes back to the prior url.

Try change order of this and see if it helps:

   LNameEd.Setfocus;
   LNameEd.SelectNone;

Hi Kim,

I used the keypressed event:

function Txx.Edit1KeyPress(Sender: TObject; Key: Char; ShiftKey, CtrlKey, AltKey: Boolean): Boolean;
begin
Edit1.SelectNone;
Result:=true;
end;

That always "prepares" my TEdit.
