Sets the endpoint of one range based on the endpoint of another range.

Move the start of the TextRange object to the start of the specified SourceRange parameter.

The following example shows how to use the setEndPoint method to set the start point of the current range (
r1) to the endpoint of the second range (
var retval = TextRange.setEndPoint(how, SourceRange);
A text range has two endpoints: one at the beginning of the text range and one at the end. An endpoint can also be the position between two characters in an HTML document. There are four possible endpoint locations in the following HTML.
The possible endpoint locations are:
- Before the letter a.
- Between the letters a and b.
- Between the letters b and c.
- After the letter c.
This feature might not be available on platforms other than Microsoft Win32. In Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0, an endpoint is relative to text only, not HTML tags. In Internet Explorer 4.0, an endpoint cannot be established between body and p. Specifying an endpoint between body and p is interpreted as if it occurs before the letter a.
