jquery-select.js

This plugin allows you to select (highlight) the text from any element, not just input elements.

There are two methods that are added:

  • selectText() - Selects the text of the first element.
  • deselectText() - A global function that deselects the current highlight.

Example usage

// Selects the text inside #some-element
$('#some-element').selectText()

// Selects the text of the first a-tag on the page
$('a').selectText()

// Deselects the currently selected text
$.deselectText()

Requirements

  • jQuery 1.0+

Compatability

This plugin supports all major browsers including IE5.5+
