Mobile safari frustration of the day: Doesn’t seem possible to extend or replace the callout on text selection June 4, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielharrison @ 7:31 am

I have a rich text component that does awesome things client side. In safari on the ipad, l’d like to extend the options with additional local page functionality. That is, do something with the selected text, however at this stage it looks like this is locked down.

It also looks like you can’t select text programmatically via the dom range selection api.

sigh 😉
