    Unanswered: Get the text selection of a Ext GWT HTML Editor text area


    Hi all,

    I am trying to get the selected text within a HTML Editor to a String.
    I have read that it can only be done using native javascript.
    I have tried this but couldn't figure out how to get the selected text from the html editor.

    What I have is (Underlined text is the selected text):
    HTMLEditor editor = new HTMLEditor();
    editor.setValue("Test phrase for selection Test);

    What I want is:
    String selection = editor.getSelection();
    // selection should be = hrase fo

    Anyone can help?

    Thanks in advance

    jonas sabu ,

    First of all, text in HTML Editor is not normal text in any text area. It is a formatted text that has got div, b, i tags etc.
    Maybe, you can access string between <u> and </u> tags. Get string from HTML Editor to Javascript variable, and parse it by u tags.
