save-selection-when-unfocused

Arguments: text-edit-pane

Use of this option is deprecated. It had been a property of the multi-line-editable-text widget and the text-edit-pane window.

The value defaults to true, which means that the widget will retain the same selected text after the keyboard focus moves away from it and back to it. Specifying nil instead is no longer officially supported, though for backward compatibility it will still pass the option on the Windows platform to select all text when you tab to the widget, even though Microsoft stopped documenting this option some time ago. We did not find a feasible way to implement it on GTK, and attempting to similarly select all text when clicking the widget (on either platform) causes confusing effects.

GTK Note

This property is not implemented on GTK, and calling the function or passing its initarg will have no effect. A widget will always behave as if the property value is true.
