Limits To The Amount Of Text One Can 'grab' With Window.getSelection Or Document.selection.createRange()?
I can't seem to find this info anywhere?Do window.getSelection() or document.selection.createRange() hold a set # of characters or can they hold an infinite/huge #?I am working on a bookmarklet and want to know if I need to restrict the amount of text one copies.

IE's Document.selection.createRange Doesn't Include Leading Or Trailing Blank Lines?
I'm trying to extract the exact selection and cursor location from a textarea. As usual, what's easy in most browsers is not in IE.

I'm using this:

var sel=document.selection.createRange();
var temp=sel.duplicate();
temp.setEndPoint("EndToEnd", sel);
selectionEnd = temp.text.length;
selectionStart = selectionEnd - sel.text.length;

Which works 99% of the time. The problem is that TextRange.text doesn't return leading or trailing new line characters. So when the cursor is a couple of blank lines after a paragraph it yields a position at the end of the preceeding paragraph - rather than the actual cursor position.

The only fix I can think of is to temporarily insert a character before and after the selection, grab the actual selection and then remove those temp characters again. It's a hack but in a quick experiment looks like it will work.

CreateRange() In Browsers != IE
I have a nice Javascript code which allows users to HTML format code in a textarea, similar to the code of Post New Thread page. It works great in Internet Explorer but it does nothing in other browsers.

It seems the problem resides in this two lines:

seleccio = a.text;
How can I arrange this lines in order to make them cross-browser? I really need this code to work, at least, in current versions of Netscape, Mozilla and Opera.

Get HTML Markup For CreateRange() In Firefox?
I am currently using code similar to this code...

As you can see, I am accessing a node from an iframe (no fun already). I am definitely in new territory here, so am sure there are more issues to arise, but right now, I am trying to get Firefox to give me the same result as IE.

In IE, I can access the HTML code of the selection by using the (apparently IE-only) htmlText property of the object returned by createRange(). What I am looking for is the Firefox equivalent to that (or a function that I can use to give me the same result).

Anyone know how to do this?

function spawn(ev){
var oSelect = ''
var oFlag = false;
if (ns4 || ns6)
oSelect = document.getSelection();
else if (ie4 || ie5){
if (!ev)
ev = window.event;
oFlag = true;
oSelect = document.selection;
if (oSelect == '')

In Netscape 4.8 if text is not selected nothing happens which is what I want. Please
disregard the fact that oSelect.type is not Netscape compatible you are really
seeing only a partial of what I am doing.

The issue here comes from this page: Code:

Is there a way to achieve in Firefox (and other browsers) what I achieve in
IE6 with the document.selection.empty()? I want to be able to empty the
selection every time the user clicks a certain area, thus making it
impossible to select any text in that area. Is there a way to clear the
text selection in Firefox?

W3C Equiv Of Document.selection.clear()
According to Google I'm the first person ever to have had this problem. I'm looking for the Gecko equivalent of document.selection.clear() or (better) document.selection.empty().

Pinpoint A Word Or A Selection In The Entire Document?
I am trying to highlight a part of the text on my website. This highlighted text will be saved for the specific user in a database and when the document is opened again it will show the previously highlighted text. I assumed I would be using javascript to highlight the text but I cannot seem to find a way to pinpoint where the word is that I am highlighting.


I am using that to get the selection but I cannot figure out where the selection is in the text. The biggest annoyance is when I have duplicates within the line or text so if I were to use search then I would find the first instance and not the one I was looking for. So the question is : How do you pinpoint a word or a selection in the entire document?

Using QUnit To Test Utility Functions That Use Document.write(): Make Document Object Be Some Other Document?
I have a pair of utility functions that use document.write() to alter the DOM, injecting tags that load JavaScript and CSSIs it possible to use QUnit to test that the injection is happening correctly without having it impact the actual DOM of the test results page?I can:Overwrite document.write(), perhaps in setup and resetting it in teardown, to be a function I define. But them I'm not testing that the calls to document.write() do what they're supposed to do.

Use something like js-test-driver to have the JavaScript run from a command line (although I really want to have the test results page available).Create a separate test results page just for these utility tests so that those results don't affect the other tests in any way, shape, or form (although I really want a single unified page).Pass the utility functions empty JS and CSS files to load so they don't actually impact the results page.So I have options. But what I really want is to make document be some document other than the actual current document. I'm not sure this is possible. (In fact, I'm not even sure it makes any sense.) Is this possible? It seems like something I might be able to do with an iframe or something like that.If it helps at all, here's an example of the type of function I want to unit test:

document.write('<script type="text/javascript" src="'+jsFile+'"></script>');

Jquery :: Absolute Selection To Relative Selection Using $(this)
Say there is a selector $("#someID p") and that $(this) = $("#someID"). What selector would always be equal (if it was more complicated, like the example below) starting with $(this). Example: I have the following selector: $( + " tr:eq(" + i + ") td:eq(" + j + ")") On that line, I have $(this) being equal to $( How would I remove from the first line and still keep the rest of the selector?
