mnTextSelector lets you quickly create custom functions to run when a user selects specific text on your site. Say you want to give the user an option to view the definition of a word they highlight, you just create a function or a link to view the definition and apply it to this jQuery plugin. When your user selects a word or a string of text, the options you provide will appear.


  • Quickly add callback functions with jQuery.mnTextSelector.addOption(label,callback).
  • Options will appear over user-highlighted text.
