I assume that you have some custom scripts for selection when user focused the TextBox. Could you please post your aspx page markup with the related code behind file? Thus we will be able to gather more details about your scenario and provide you with more to-the-point answer. Additionally I am sending you a simple example which demonstrates the desired functionality. Please check it out and let me know if it helps you.
Looking forward for your reply.
