(defobfun (add-self-to-dialog *my-subclass-of-editable-text-dialog-item*)
  (usual-add-self-to-dialog dialog)
  (let ((teptr (ask dialog te-handle))
        (self (self))
    (ask dialog (set-current-editable-text self))  ;Maybe already done, so
    (_TESetSelect :long 0 :long 0 :ptr teptr)
    ;Hmmmm.  Maybe these constants (0) need to be replaced by a (let
((start 0) (end 0)...?
) )

This should get you started.   You may be able to do a test and see if this
is the _1st_ editable-text, which is probably the only one for which the
_TESetSelect is done by MACL to be the whole text.
