ASPxClientHtmlEditorSelection.GetElements Method

Returns an array of the currently selected elements.

Namespace:DevExpress.Web.ASPxHtmlEditor.Scripts
Assembly:JavaScript

Expanded Syntax

Return value

Type: Object[]
An array of objects that are currently selected.

Expanded Remarks

The ASPxHtmlEditor allows you to access and modify the currently selected content on the client side. To access the selection, use the editor's ASPxClientHtmlEditor.GetSelection client function, which returns an ASPxClientHtmlEditorSelection class instance.

Use the GetElements property to access the selection's HTML elements (XML DOM nodes).
Note

The selection API is available only in the Design View.
