Cómo capturar el range de text seleccionado en iOS después de la expansión de selección de text

Estoy trabajando en una aplicación web que permite a un usuario seleccionar text, hacer clic en un button y save el text resaltado. Esto funciona muy bien en los browseres de escritorio, (Chrome para este ejemplo), pero en iOS estoy teniendo problemas con la selección de text nativo, donde el usuario puede cambiar el text seleccionado.

Aquí está el JsFiddle mostrando el problema (el problema solo existe en iOS): http://jsfiddle.net/JasonMore/gWZfb/

  1. El usuario inicia la selección de text

  2. El usuario amplía su selección de text y hace clic en "Mostrar el text seleccionado arriba"

  3. Solo aparece la primera palabra seleccionada " The ", aunque quiero " The Path of the righteous man "

1 comienzo comenzar la selección de texto de iOS

2 Selecciona Texto y presiona el button ampliar texto

3 solo "el" Solo el

Aquí está el JS que estoy usando:

$(function() { $('#actionButton').click(function() { $('#result').text(selectedRange.toString()); }); $('#slipsum').on('mouseup touchend','p', function() { getSelectedRange(); }); }); var selectedRange = null; var getSelectedRange = function() { if (window.getSelection) { selectedRange = window.getSelection().getRangeAt(0); } else { selectedRange = document.getSelection().getRangeAt(0); } };​ 

HTML:

 <h3>Selected Text:</h3> <p id="result"> </p> <br/> <p> <input type="button" id="actionButton" value="Show the selected text above" /> </p> <!-- start slipsum code --> <div id="slipsum"> <h1>Is she dead, yes or no?</h1> <p>Do you see any Teletubbies in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that's what you see at a toy store. And you must think you're in a toy store, because you're here shopping for an infant named Jeb. </p> <h1>So, you cold?</h1> <p>The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee. </p> <h1>I'm serious as a heart attack</h1> <p>Do you see any Teletubbies in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that's what you see at a toy store. And you must think you're in a toy store, because you're here shopping for an infant named Jeb. </p> <h1>Is she dead, yes or no?</h1> <p>Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price. </p> <h1>Is she dead, yes or no?</h1> <p>Your bones don't break, mine do. That's clear. Your cells react to bacteria and viruses differently than mine. You don't get sick, I do. That's also clear. But for some reason, you and I react the exact same way to water. We swallow it too fast, we choke. We get some in our lungs, we drown. However unreal it may seem, we are connected, you and I. We're on the same curve, just on opposite ends. </p> </div> <!-- please do not remove this line --> <div style="display:none;"> <a href="http://slipsum.com">lorem ipsum</a></div> <!-- end slipsum code -->​

 $(function() { $('#actionButton').click(function() { if (selectedRange) { $('#result').text(selectedRange.toString()); clearInterval(timer); } }); timer = setInterval(getSelectedRange, 150); }); var timer = null; var selectedRange = null; var getSelectedRange = function() { try { if (window.getSelection) { selectedRange = window.getSelection().getRangeAt(0); } else { selectedRange = document.getSelection().getRangeAt(0); } } catch (err) { } };​
