Getting Selected Text

Recommended Posts

I have the follwing HTML code

[code]
<html><head></head><body>
This is the body text. From here I will select text
<input type="button" name="test" id="t1" value="push">
</body></html>
[/code]

I want that when I select any text in the body section of the webpage and press push button, the selected text will be shown in a alert window. How can I do this??

you can do this with a textbox and its value
<script>
function alertme(){
alert(document.formname.text1.value);
}
</script>
<form name="formname">
<input type="text" value="This is the body text. From here I will select text" size="60" name="text1">
<input type="button" name="test" id="t1" value="push" onclick="alertme();">
</form>
