JQuery Select Event

In this article we will learn how JQuery select events work

The select event is sent to an element when the user makes a text selection inside it. This event is limited to <input type="text"> fields and <textarea> boxes.

Example 1: Show Alert when textbox value is selected using JQuery Select Event (Live Demo)
I have a html textarea control, whose id is "txtInput" on selecting content of textarea, I will display alert.

<textarea id="txtInput" rows="5" cols="20">Welcome to the world of JQuery</textarea>

JQuery script for showing alert on text content selection

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {

            function () {
                alert("Text content is selected");


I will be discussing more JQuery examples in JQuery example series.
