Coloring Text Selection

Sometimes you need to make the selected text look like a common skin. To set a custom color for the selection, use the following technique:

1) Define a CSS class with ::selection and ::-moz-selection pseudo-elements inside:

.my_style::selection {
    color: #454544;
    background-color: #fffcda;
}
.my_style::-moz-selection {
    color: #454544;
    background-color: #fffcda;
}


2) Set the above specified CSS class for the required object:

<div id="layoutObj"></div>
<div id="objId">
    King Arthur is a 2004 film directed by Antoine Fuqua ...
</div>
<div id="objId2" class="my_style">
    King Arthur is a 2004 film directed by Antoine Fuqua ...
</div>
var myLayout = new dhtmlXLayoutObject({
    parent: "layoutObj",
    pattern: "2U",
    cells: [
        {id: "a", text: "Default selection"},
        {id: "b", text: "Custom selection"}
    ]
});
 
myLayout.cells("a").attachObject("objId");
myLayout.cells("b").attachObject("objId2");
