JavaScript How to get the text value of the selected option of a select jquery object? text value selected jquery,text value selected,text box value

if I'm passing a jquery object that I know is a select object, how can I get the text (not the value) of the option that is selected?

I'm needing something like this.

...function ($select){

    var selectedText = $select.selected().text();

}

And since $select is already a jquery object, I cant really change the selector of the object to use ":selected".

Answer:1
$select.find(':selected').text();

should do.
