Member variable XbpRtf():selTabCount Foundation

Specifies the number of tab stops defined for the text following the current selection or insertion point.

Attribute: EXPORTED
Data type: Numeric (0)

The :selTabCount property contains a numeric value with the number of tab positions currently defined. The position of an individual tab position can be set using method :selTabs().

If the text in the current selection contains sections with different tabulator settings, the instance variable :selTabCount contains the value NIL. This value represents an indeterminate state that the Xbase++ application may chose to visualize in its user interface. Some word processor applications use grayed controls to visualize conflicting properties in the current selection, for example.

NIL is valid value for reading only. A run time error results, if an attempt is made to assign NIL to the :selTabCount instance variable.
