    wParam = (WPARAM) (BOOL) bNeedAlways;
    lParam = (LPARAM) nSelType;



If this parameter is TRUE, the type of selection status can be set even if none is selected. If this parameter is FALSE, SEL_TYPE_NONE will cancel the selection.

SEL_TYPE_NONE Not selected.
SEL_TYPE_CHAR Stream selection mode.
SEL_TYPE_LINE Line selection mode.
