Re: [gedit-list] Is there a signal for text selection?

Thanks for the response, Paolo. You'll have to forgive me; I'm pretty new at this. I'm having trouble figuring out which object has the "has_selection" property. Can you point me in the right direction? Or perhaps tell me where to find some helpful documentation?

Thanks again,

Since "has_selection" is a property, you can use the "notify" signal to
see when the property changes. At that point you can grab the selection
with get_selected()
