TextArea getSelectedText function

Hello everybody, there is any way to get selected text from TextArea ?

Thank you

Hi!

I don’t think there is a way to get the selection, but you could write an extension for the TextArea that listens for selection changes at the client side and communicate the events to the server side.

I’m glad to be of help! :slight_smile:
