Since my dev focus shifted, this project is abandoned. I recommend you use something else, like e.g. jquery-textrange (see website link).

jQuery - fieldSelection

A jQuery plugin to get'n'set the caret/selection.

Description

Retrieve the caret (text cursor) position from textareas and input fields as well as the actual selection and its index boundaries. Replacing the selection string is also supported. Unfortunately special treatment for such a simple thing is needed, because MSIE doesn't support the easy DOM 3.0 methods.

Status

First public release: getSelection and replaceSelection basically works.

Check my blog or the fieldSelection page for further updates.

Requirements

jQuery (tested with version 1.0.2+)
