问题描述:

Is it possible to select all the text an an element (e.g., a paragraph <p>) with JavaScript? A lot of people think jQuery .select() would do this, but it does not. It merely triggers an event. Note that DOM objects for <input> elements have a native select() method, but most other elements (such as <output> and <p>) do not.

(Do I need to use content-editable to get this to work?)

网友答案:

If you need to support later browsers, i.e., IE9+, you can use the following http://jsfiddle.net/q04jp0qx/2/

var range = document.createRange();
var selection = window.getSelection();
range.selectNodeContents(document.getElementById('p'));

selection.removeAllRanges();
selection.addRange(range);

网友答案:

select() Will only work on <input> and <textarea> elements...

Also yes, you will have to use:

contenteditable="true"

And use .focus() to select all the text.

Try this:

<p id="editable" contenteditable="true" 
onfocus="document.execCommand('selectAll',false,null);">Your Text Here</p>

<button onclick="document.getElementById('editable').focus();" >Click me</button>
