getSelectedText Method


Selected text of a page or all pages in the document as a simple string object.


JavaScript Syntax
DocumentViewerText.prototype.getSelectedText = function(pageNumber) 
TypeScript Syntax
getSelectedText(pageNumber: number): string; 



Page number to use. If this value is 0, then the text of all pages in the document will be used.

Return Value

The selected text of the page or the document as a simple string object, or an empty string if no selected text was found.


If the text of the specified page(s) was not previously obtained, then the value of AutoGetText will be used to determine whether DocumentPage.GetText is called automatically. Therefore, this method might experience a delay while the text is parsed from the document in this mode.


For an example, refer to DocumentViewerText.
