Completes an active text selection process; the selection range is marked closed and then the selected text is copied as though the Copy action was executed.

Since: Version 20210203-095643-70a364eb

The functionality described in this section requires version 20210203-095643-70a364eb of wezterm, or a more recent version.

CompleteSelection now requires a destination parameter to specify which clipboard buffer the selection will populate; the copy action is now equivalent to CopyTo.

config.mouse_bindings = {
  -- Change the default click behavior so that it only selects
  -- text and doesn't open hyperlinks, and that it populates
  -- the Clipboard rather the PrimarySelection which is part
  -- of the default assignment for a left mouse click.
    event = { Up = { streak = 1, button = 'Left' } },
    mods = 'NONE',
    action = wezterm.action.CompleteSelection 'Clipboard',
