Range.cloneRange()

The Range.cloneRange() method returns a Range object with boundary points identical to the cloned Range.

The returned clone is copied by value, not reference, so a change in either Range does not affect the other.

Syntax

clone = range.cloneRange();

Example

range = document.createRange();
range.selectNode(document.getElementsByTagName("div").item(0));
clone = range.cloneRange();
