    inserting text in a textbox

    I have this code:

    Code:
    textbox.Text.Insert(4, "Test");
    It simply doesn't work. textbox is a Textbox object and there is at least 500 characters of text already inside the textbox so the start position isn't the problem I don't belive.

    It doesn't insert the text anywere.

    nvm I figured it out. I didn't realize that insert returned the new string so I had to set textbox.Text to the returned string. It works fine now.
