I want to mark the full content of text fields automatically as soon as the text field gains the focus. I use setSelectionStart und setSelectionEnd in the focus gained.

The problem is that I need to create a focus gained event for all text fields. I wonder if there is a more elegant solution to this?

Please use the selectAllOnFocusGained property of the text field. It does exactly what you want.
