Summary
Returns a chunk expression describing the line or lines in the text selection.
Examples

select the selectedLine

Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the selectedLine function to determine which line the selection or text insertion point is in.

Value:

The selectedLine function returns a chunk expression of the form

line lineNumber of field fieldNumber

if the text selection is on one line, or

line startLine to endLine of field fieldNumber

if the text selection crosses multiple lines.

Comments:

A line is defined as a string that's delimited by return characters. A line in a narrow field may wrap around several times, and look like more than one line on screen, but it is still considered a single line.

If there is no insertion point or text selection, the selectedLine function returns empty.

To get a chunk expression describing the location of the selection, use the selectedChunk function. To get the selected lines in a list field that allows non-contiguous selections, use the hilitedLine property.
