How to get caretPos or start and end points of selection in iframe for wysiwyg editor

P: 2

I m not getting caretPos for iframe in Firefox... Also it doesn't give me selectionStart or selectionEnd points for iframe... code works fine for textarea also in FF.. but not for iframe..

I m using this code :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var startPos = document.getElementById('iView').contentWindow
  2.         .document.selectionStart;
  3. var endPos = document.getElementById('iView').contentWindow
  4.         .document.selectionEnd;
Here i m getting undefined value for startPos and endPos. here iView is my iframe editor. And i m getting problem only for FF. In Internet Explorer all works fine.

Can anyone help me out in this ??
