getCurrentSelection2

Get the current selection.
getCurrentSelection2([out] int *page, [out] double *x0, [out] double *y0, [out] double *x1, [out] double *y1, [out, retval] VARIANT_BOOL *isSelection)
If there is a currently active selection, this function sets *page to its page number, *x0, *y0 to its upper-left corner, *x1, *y1 to its lower-right corner, and returns true. If there is no selection, this function returns false.

The coordinates of the upper-left and lower-right corners are in the PDF file coordinate space - they are not screen pixel coordinates. This means that changes in zoom or rotation will not affect the rectangle described by specific values of the four coordinates. See the convertPDFToWindowCoords2 for conversion to window coordinates.

VB6:
Private Sub CopyMenu_Click() Dim page As Long Dim x0 As Double, y0 As Double, x1 As Double, y1 As Double If viewer.getCurrentSelection2(page, x0, y0, x1, y1) Then Clipboard.SetText viewer.extractTextFromPage(page, x0, y0, x1, y1) End If End Sub
(This example is for illustration purposes - using copySelection is much simpler.)
