    How to retrieve the selected text from textField in Flash MX using actionscript

      I need to be able to get the text selected by user after clicking a dynamic scrolling textfield.
      I am very disappointed to find no method that returns the selected text when there is a property of textField to make it selectable.

      I am using Flash MX. Let me know if this is possible in newer versions if not in MX.
