    adding strings of text to a textbox.

    I have this textbox (yes I said textbox not textarea, xul is what I am useing). And I what to add a small bit of text in the middle of a lot of code. What I am useing is selectionStart to cut the value of the textbox in two the doing

    Code:
    textbox.value = firstBlock + newText + LastBlock
    But I am finding were this is a lot of text in the textbox this can be slow. Is there a better way of doing this that dose not reguire the value of all the text to be colected and the printed back out again?

    Yours respectfully

    Anything else you might do (using string methods or RegExp), in the final you will have to give your textfield the new value, so that, no, I guess that there is no other way without printing the new value back again in the field.
