This is not a telerik specific query. When I select the text by double clicking or click and dragging, How can I get the selected text in js? 

Thankyou
Robert

Hi Robert,

Please check the following JavaScript.

JavaScript:
<script type="text/javascript">
    var searchString = "";
    if (window.document.selection) {
        var rng = window.document.selection.createRange();
        searchString = rng.text;
    }
    else if (window.getSelection) {
        searchString = window.getSelection().toString();
    }
</script>

Thanks,
Shinu.
