I've come across this question before. I can't remember if it was here or some place else. The problem is the click causes the textbox to place the cursor and clear the selection. This undoes the select all you are attempting to do on the click event. I don't recall discovering a slick way around it but I did figure out a solution.

What I did was called a procedure asyncronosly. The procedure called thread.sleep for just a few milliseconds, which in practice wasn't necessary, but I figured better play it safe. After that it called selectall. Because the procedure is called asyncronosly it fires after the textbox has done it's normal thing of placing the cursor. Thus the highlighting happens after that event and "sticks".

I'm sure you could actually do this with a timer as well. Just set the timer to fire after 10 ms or so and when it does call selectall. This should create the same delay.
