EditContext: characterBoundsRangeStart property

Limited availability

This feature is not Baseline because it does not work in some of the most widely-used browsers.

Experimental: This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The characterBoundsRangeStart read-only property of the EditContext interface indicates the index of the character, within the editable text content, that corresponds to the first item in the characterBounds array.

For example, if the EditContent contains the characters abc, and if characterBoundRangeStart is 1, the first item in the characterBounds array contains the bounds for the character b.
