its nice working to select a text from external application via :

SendMessage(SomeHandle, EM_SETSEL, start, end);

but how to get selected text  without using clipboard ?
_________________________________________
var
THESELECTEDTEXT:string;
begin
SendMessage(SomeHandle, EM_GETSELTEXT, textlength + 1,
    lParam(integer(THESELECTEDTEXT)));
end;

the code below, doesnt work and I dont wantto use clipboard.
is it possible like WM_GETTEXT but I know WMGETTEXT gets whole text that I
dont want.

is there a way to get selected text from an external application without
using WMclipboard and WM _COPY ?

thanks
