How do I retrieve the position of the cursor within a XbpSLE object?

For example, if the text "1234567" is typed into a XbpSLE object and the 
user manually clicks the mouse inside the object and puts the cursor 
between the 3 and 4 (example: 123|4567), how can I retrieve the cursor 
position to know it is currently at position 4?

I'm searched the newsgroups, and there are a lot of posts regarding how 
to manually set the cursor position using the :setMarked() method, but I 
can't find any examples of how to find out where the cursor is currently 
positioned.

Is there a way to do this?  If so, how?

Thanks!

Is there a ::Get:Pos iVar? I still use the old XBPGET.prg from Alaska 
and it refers to ::Get:Pos to determine and set the cursor position.

HTH,

John.

Chris,

oSLE:QueryMarked() -> aMarked

If the cursor is between the "3" and the "4", :QueryMarked() would return: 
{4, 4} and if the "4" is highlighted, :QueryMarked() would return: {4, 5}.

Hope that helps,

Andreas

John and Andreas,

Thanks for your quick responses!  I tested the :queryMarked() method 
that Andreas suggested, and it looks like that will work for what I need.

I appreciate the help!

Good afternoon.
I am having a strange behavior of XbpGet() when I move the right and 
left arrows in the first time that I start a Get() edition.
I will investigate it soon. Does someone has this problem too?

Fraternally
