The selectedText for controls without focus

For a scriptless solution that's purely property-driven, what Jacque 
said covers normal click-and-drag selection at the small cost of 
multi-click selection.

And if you need multi-click selection and don't mind a small bit of 
scripting, putting this in a normal editable field seems to make it 
uneditable well enough while still allowing Copy to work:

on rawkeydown k
    if k = 99 then
       if the commandKey is "down" then copy
    end if
end rawkeydown
