Gtk.TextBuffer buf = my_text_view.Buffer;
GtkTextIter start, end;

if (buf.GetSelectionBounds (buf, out start, out end)) {
        string text;

        text = buf.GetText (start, end, false);
        Console.WriteLine ("Selected text: {0}", text);
} else
        Console.WriteLine ("No selected text");
