Method XbpMLE():deleteMarked() Foundation

Deletes the selected characters from the edit buffer.

:deleteMarked() --> nDeletedChars

This method returns a numeric value indicating the number of characters actually deleted.


The :deleteMarked() method deletes the selected characters from the edit buffer without copying them to the clipboard. This is the same action that is performed if the user presses the Delete key. Characters are selected using the Left and Right arrow keys while continuously holding down the Shift key. If no characters are selected, the character immediately to the right of the cursor is deleted.
