Generic Function

Package: common-graphics

Arguments: stream

Returns an integer indicating the current line where selected text starts or, if there is no selected text, where the text cursor is located. 0 indicates the first line. stream can be a multi-line-editable-text control. It can also be a text-edit-window or text-edit-pane.

See also current-text-column.

Note: incompatible change in release 6.0: in releases prior to 6.0, when a frame-with-single-child instance was passed to this operator, the operator was actually applied to the child (the result of applying frame-child to the frame-with-single-child instance). In release 6.0, this redirection no longer occurs. If you intend this operator to apply to the frame-child, pass that to this operator rather than the parent. This is a non-backward-compatible-change. See the release notes for more information.
