I'm not quite sure if you can do that, but if you add a mouselistener and selectd your text first you can use getSelectedText();

Else you can check the mouseposition when you rightclick and calculate the rowNo from that

you could try something like:

int caret = pane.getCaretPosition();
Rectangle rect = pane.modelToView(caret);

approximately not accurate

Font font = pane.getFont();
int lineno = evt.getY()/font.getSize();

 Hello friends,
     Thanks for your reply.
  Actually wht i did to solve this problem is,
     I calculated line no with help of  some calculation of StartPos, EndPos of the line  by using getCarePosition();
 then Using this startPos, endPos  , we can do Select by using TextPane.select(startPos,endPos);
