how can i get the selected text of a web page using webKitBrowser?
 

here is the old code of the default browser:
IHTMLDocument2 htmlDocument = webBrowser1.Document.DomDocument as IHTMLDocument2;
 
IHTMLSelectionObject currentSelection = htmlDocument.selection;
 
            if (currentSelection != null)
            {
            IHTMLTxtRange range = currentSelection.createRange() as IHTMLTxtRange;
 
                if (range != null)
                {
                   string browserSelectedText = range.text;
                }
            }

This is an old post... The solution is very simple : string browserSelextedText = webKitBrowser1.SelectedText;
