    Range.toString()

    The Range.toString() method is a stringifier returning the text of the Range.

    Alerting the contents of a Range makes an implicit toString() call, so comparing range and text through an alert dialog is ineffective

    Syntax

    text = range.toString();

    Example

    var range = document.createRange();
    
    range.selectNode(document.getElementsByTagName("div").item(0));
    text = range.toString();
