(editor1doc.selection).type does not work in Firefox?

    (editor1doc.selection).type does not work in Firefox?

    The following Javascript function is called in the onclick event of an ASP.NET image button.   I put alert statements after each line to isolate where it is failing in Firefox for Windows 2.0.0.8.   In IE, this works fine and goes all the way through (pasting the string **FILE1** into the editor).   But, in Firefox, only the first three alerts show.   The fourth, which references (editor1doc.selection).type does not display, the function apparently ends at that point and the **FILE1** string is not pasted into the editor.
     
    Can you determine what is wrong?   Thanks.
     
    function CE_MarkEmbedObjectPosition()
    {
     alert("DEBUG: START CE_MARKEMBEDOBJECTPOSITION");
     // get the cute editor instance
     var editor1 = document.getElementById('');
     alert("DEBUG: CE_MARKEMBEDOBJECTPOSITION, after var editor1=" + editor1);
    var editor1doc = editor1.GetDocument();
    alert("DEBUG: CE_MARKEMBEDOBJECTPOSITION, after var editor1doc");
     alert("DEBUG:CE_MarkEmbedObjectPosition, (editor1doc.selection).type=" + (editor1doc.selection).type);
     if ((editor1doc.selection).type == "Text")
    {
     var selectedhtml = editor1doc.selection.createRange().htmlText;
    alert("DEBUG: CE_MarkEmbedObjectPosition, Text, selectedhtml=" + selectedhtml);
     editor1.PasteHTML(selectedhtml + "**FILE1**");
     }
     if ((editor1doc.selection).type == "None")
     {
     var selectedhtml = editor1doc.selection.createRange().htmlText;
     alert("DEBUG: CE_MarkEmbedObjectPosition, None, selectedhtml=" + selectedhtml);
     editor1.PasteHTML(selectedhtml + "**FILE1**");
     }
     alert("DEBUG:End of CE_MarkEmbedObjectPosition, gethtml=" + CE_getHTML());
     }

    Just reposting this as I see it has dropped well down the queue after several days while many newer posts have been answered.  Thanks.

    Adam,
     
    Thanks, I see that I will need to do something differently later in the function.   However, as it stands now, because of the apparent failure of the statement which contains the reference to  (editor1doc.selection).type) , I can't get down to the point where htmlText is referenced.   Do I need to do that differently in Firefox (again, this all works fine in IE)?

    editor1doc.selection is null in Firefox too.
     
    Can you just use the Code I wrote?

    Adam, The first clause of the IF statement just drops out of the function without proceeding, but if you comment that out and start with the window.getSelection clause it seems to work fine, at least for the situations we are concerned with.   Thanks!

    function getSelectedHTML(){
          var rng=null,html="";

          //if (document.selection && document.selection.createRange){
          //  rng=editdoc.selection.createRange();
          //  html=rng.htmlText||"";
          //}else
     if (window.getSelection){
            rng=editwin.getSelection();
            if (rng.rangeCount > 0 && window.XMLSerializer){
              rng=rng.getRangeAt(0);
              html=new XMLSerializer().serializeToString(rng.cloneContents());
            }
          }
          return html;
        }

    Use the following code:
     
     
     
      function getSelectedHTML(){
          var rng=null,html="";

          if (document.selection && document.selection.createRange){
            rng=editdoc.selection.createRange();
            html=rng.htmlText||"";
          }else if (window.getSelection){
            rng=editwin.getSelection();

            if (rng.rangeCount > 0 && window.XMLSerializer){
              rng=rng.getRangeAt(0);
              html=new XMLSerializer().serializeToString(rng.cloneContents());
            }
          }
          return html;
        }
