Problems with tabs in EditControl related to cursor position and highlighting

I attached a demo solution showing the issue.

  • The EditControl is pre-populated with text with “\t” characters in it, upon opening the app, put cursor after “texT2” is tricky – you have to put cursor several places after end of the characters, like 10 chars after end, then cursor will shown at end of the text (after “3”), this is the main issue
  • Try highlight some portion of the text randomly, you will see the text in selection is not behaving as expected – like the text highlighted doesn’t look right and if you hold down the mouse and move mouse around, you will see characters move around (ctrl-A is fine),
  • The app allows you to switch to whitespace mode for comparison
