I'm trying to insert text at the start of a line in the radSyntaxEditor.  

I haven't found a way to do it, and was attempting to use the following code

Dim cp As CaretPosition = editor.SyntaxEditorElement.CaretPosition
cp.MoveToLineStart()

However, this doesn't appear to move to the start of the current line.

Ultimately, I'd rather not actually move the cursor, I'd like to insert without doing that.  Is that possible?

Ok, I figured out what I was doing wrong with this.

That being said, I'd still like to be able to insert text at the beginning of a line, without actually moving the caret, if possible?

Hi, Troy,

I am glad that you have found an appropriate solution for your scenario. Please have in mind that the caret position controls where exactly you are navigated inside the editor. It allows you to insert some text at certain places, make selection or delete parts of the document.

That is why you need to navigate to the desired location (e.g. the beginning of the document) and insert the text. After that you can move the cursor to any other location.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
