An EditableRegion object represents an editable region in a TX Text Control document. When the EditMode property of a Text Control has been set to ReadAndSelect, editable regions can still be edited, either by everyone or depending on the UserName property by a certain user. Each of the main textparts of a document has an EditableRegionCollection which can be used to add and remove editable regions or to save the editable region's text.
