EnableTextSelection Property (GdViewer)
Example 





GdPicture14.WPF Namespace > GdViewer Class : EnableTextSelection Property
Specifies if text selection is enabled in the GdViewer control, that means, for example, also the ability to copy text from the currently displayed page of the text-based document.

The line selection mode is used by default, holding the Alt-key during selection permits you to switch to the column selection mode.
