Neat trick for selecting text in a textbox when it gain keyboard focus

Yesterday I found a cool little trick for highlighting the text in a textbox when it gains the keyboard focus.

textbox.Attributes.Add("onfocus", "this.select();");

Hope that helps someone out there, it gives a “richer” feeling to the GUI I think.
