  2. Hi, from other postings here as a start I'm quite Close to my Goal of putting formatted text to the clipboard: #include-once #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiRichEdit.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $g_idLblMsg, $g_hRichEdit Example("The first text will be formatted ""as is""" & @CRLF & _ "(Default Font and font size)", "This text is formatted differently") MsgBox(0, "Rich Text copied", "Formatted Text put to clipboard") Func Example($TextDefault, $TextCourier) Local $hGui, $iMsg, $idBtnNext, $iStep = 0 $hGui = GUICreate("Example (" & StringTrimRight(@ScriptName, StringLen(".exe")) & ")", 320, 350, -1, -1) $g_hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, $TextDefault, 10, 10, 300, 220, BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL)) $g_idLblMsg = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 235, 300, 60) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetSel($g_hRichEdit, -1, -1) ; set selection behind last CHAR in RTF_EDIT _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetFont($g_hRichEdit, 8, "Courier New") ; change font to 8pt, Courier New _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendText($g_hRichEdit, @CRLF & $TextCourier) _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetSel($g_hRichEdit, 0, -1) ; select all the content of the RTF_EDIT _GUICtrlRichEdit_Copy($g_hRichEdit) ; put the selection to the clipboard EndFunc ;==>Example Finally the clipboard content has to hold pre-formatted data to be pasted into an email body. for the 2nd part I'd like to add a frame around the text, like I did manually before taking this screenshot. Any suggestions, or maybe some absolutely different Approach? CU, Rudi.
  3. I'm creating a tool which automatically saves screenshots. I've found that some images appear corrupt after saving. I've narrowed the source down to screenshots taken from within an RDP session via the Ctrl+Alt+Plus (PrtScn equivalent) and Ctrl+Alt+Minus (Alt+PrtScn equivalent) key combos. Here is the example code: #include <ClipBoard.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> If _ClipBoard_IsFormatAvailable($CF_BITMAP) Then ConsoleWrite("+Bitmap found on Clipboard" & @CRLF) If Not _ClipBoard_Open(0) Then MsgBox(16, "Error", "_ClipBoard_Open failed") Exit EndIf $hClipboardImage = _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_BITMAP) _ClipBoard_Close() _GDIPlus_Startup() $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hClipboardImage) $sCLSID = _GDIPlus_EncodersGetCLSID("JPG") _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFileEx($hBitmap, @ScriptDir & "\" & TimerInit() & "_Clipboard_Image.jpg", $sCLSID, 0) _GDIPlus_BitmapDispose($hBitmap) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() Else MsgBox(48, @ScriptName, "No Bitmap found on Clipboard") EndIf If you copy a local window to the clipboard via Alt+PrtScn the above works fine. If you copy a window in an RDP session via Ctrl+Alt+Minus it saves the image, but the left-hand edge appears to contain a few pixels sliced off the right-hand side of the bitmap (see two attached images for examples; one good, one bad). If you paste directly into MSPaint, the image appears correctly, so the clipboard contents is good. It seems to be the process of converting the bitmap handle to an image file via GDIPlus which corrupts it (though I may be wrong about this). I've tried inspecting the contents of the clipboard via the _ClipBoard_EnumFormats example and I've noticed the clipboard from the RDP session contains a couple more formats; Local: Clipboard formats ..: 3 Clipboard format 1 .: Bitmap Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 RDP: Clipboard formats ..: 5 Clipboard format 1 .: DataObject Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 Clipboard format 4 .: Ole Private Data Clipboard format 5 .: Bitmap However the _ClipBoard_GetDataEx function is specifying the $CF_BITMAP constant for the format, which both instances contain, so I'm not sure the extra formats have any impact? I've tried using a combination of _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_DIB) and _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory in an effort to write the binary directly to a file, instead of using a bitmap handle, however this doesn't appear to work and just returns a zero and doesn't set @error to anything, which isn't covered in the help file (a failure should return a zero and set the @error level to something). I've hunted around the forums and tried everything I can think of. I can normally figure most things out without posting but I've been dipping in and out of this script for a few months now and have finally thrown in the towel and must ask you guys for help, which isn't a decision I take lightly. Your help is, as always, greatly appreciated.
  4. Programs like Ditto are a great augmentation to the Windows clipboard where it keeps a list of items you copy and paste and you can go back to days, weeks, months later. It also comes in handy for multiple copied items you need to paste over and over again. https://sourceforge.net/projects/ditto-cp/ Windows 10 also now has a clipboard history capability (though not as robust, I think, as Ditto). https://www.windowscentral.com/how-use-new-clipboard-windows-10-october-2018-update I would like to simulate this type of clipboard history into my own apps independent of Windows' clipboard, but I haven't a clue as to where to begin. Thank you in advance for any suggestions, examples, shelved codes. ☺
  5. I want to copy just the selected text in an input control and put it to the clipboard, but GuiCtrlRead() always reads all of the text in the control.

  7. Hello. I fail trying to save content from WhatsApp other then plain text to a file that way, that non-char-content will be preserved in it's correct encoding. e.g. Emojis are spoiled. I've tried to do so using just filewrite() as well as forcing UTF #include <clipboard.au3> MsgBox(0,"Ready to read clipboard","Mark some WhatsApp content with non-char elements, e.g. Emojis, copy that to your clipboard (CTRL+c), then click OK here.") $ClipContent=_ClipBoard_GetData() ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $ClipContent = ' & $ClipContent & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF & "Extended: " & @extended & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $File="C:\temp\ClipSaveToFile.txt" $h=FileOpen($File,2+8+64) ; overwrite, create path, UTF16 FileWrite($h,$ClipContent) FileClose($h) $h=FileOpen($File,64) $NeuGelesen=FileRead($h) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $NeuGelesen = ' & $NeuGelesen & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF & StringLen ($NeuGelesen) & @CRLF ) ;### Debug Console FileClose($h) _ClipBoard_SetData($NeuGelesen) MsgBox(0,"Done","Re-read content of TEMP file was placed to the clipboard. Now paste this into WhatsApp. (Emojis will be spoiled)") I've also tried other encodings (16, 32, 64, 512) Or what is a different, functional approach to save WhatsApp Content to File in a way, to be able to to get it back to post it back to WhatsApp? Regards, Rudi.
  8. Hello to you, dear developers! Could you please tell me if there is an easy way to determine if the information was pasted from the clipboard? Without any variation of the insertion via Ctrl+V, or through the context menu. I revised the Help and many forum topics, but found nothing suitable. Can there be any WinAPI system events that determine this event?
  9. Its possible to past previously copied text to somewhere with autoit script ? If yes, How it ? example : Before I copied ABCD and then copied the PQRS, how to past the previously copied ABCD ?
  10. I seem to have an issue with clipget() - the following bit of code copy URL from chrome address bar - than using clipget() i try to grab the URL into a variable and input it into a spreadsheet. the script did not put anything into the sheet originally I though it was an issue with OOo/LibO Calc UDF and posted it there : than I tried writing $NewURL into a text file and than just a msgbox but it comes blank. (the URL is in the clipboard as i can paste it) send ("!d") ;select URL in browser send ("^c") ;copy selected URL Local $NewURL = ClipGet() MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION + $MB_TOPMOST, $sTitle, $NewURL ) am I doing something wrong? is there an issue with a URL characters?
  11. Here's a short UDF that will, at least in most cases, detect whether a window can be copied from or pasted to programmatically--for example, by Send()ing ctl-c, ctl-v. This is often disabled when programs (like your AutoIt script) run at a lower UAC integrity level than the application they are trying to operate on. #include <WinAPI.au3> Func _WindowIsPasteable($handle) ;accepts window handle; returns true or false whether a window will accept Ctl-C, Ctl-V Local $bCanPaste = True Local $hTestWindowPID = 0 Local $hTestWindowTID = _WinAPI_GetWindowThreadProcessId($handle, $hTestWindowPID) _WinAPI_AttachThreadInput(_WinAPI_GetCurrentThreadId(), $hTestWindowTID, True);attach to window we want to paste into $bCanPaste = _WinAPI_GetFocus() ;Test whether window is paste-able--returns False if it is not _WinAPI_AttachThreadInput(_WinAPI_GetCurrentThreadId, $hTestWindowTID, False);detach from window thread Return $bCanPaste EndFunc Pass it a window handle; it returns true or false whether a window will accept programmatic pasting. The function may not work on the CMD window, since it handles the clipboard uniquely. This function works by attaching to the program thread of the window whose handle it receives, then attempting to perform a GetFocus on that thread. In most cases, the attempt will fail if the window will not accept programmatic copy-paste.
  12. Hey I have a GUI with an edit-field and a button. First I write some text into the edit-field and select a part of it. After that I press the button, and the selection is edited. How would I do that, though? When the text is selected and I press the button, it's unselected before the button actually raises an event.
  13. Hello Guys, I am trying to make a screenshoot copy it to clipboard and paste it into a word document i want to do that to simplify my procedures création. I am trying to use the way of sending Keys "^c" & "^v" i tryed also CTRLDOWN and c but no one of these is working. First question : Why that's not working? Is there anyother way i can work with ? I watched the help file for FileCopy but it s only moving Files and not copy them.

  14. Hi All I have used my script to paste a string ($TestCSVGenerator) onto the clipboard - it has text seperated by tabs and at certain intervals there are CRLF. I am certain that this is a valid string because after I run my script (and it fails to do what I need) I can then manually 'Paste' the string into Excel using CTRL v and Excel puts the text in rows separated by the tab position and starts a new row of cells after a CRLF. (I make sure that the clipboard was empty before running my program). All I need is a command that pastes the string into a certain cell and in theory the above should happen but it doesn't! First I tried the following: _Excel_RangeWrite ($oWorkbook, 1, $TestCSVGenerator, "C18", False, True) This pastes, but everything goes in one cell! I've tried all the combinations of True/false Next I tried: _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook.ActiveSheet, Default, "C18") This pastes nothing at all (gives @error =4 ), if I define a range of cells Excel does highlight them. Any ideas or alternative methods? I guess I could paste the text painfully cell by cell but Excel seems to understand what I have on the clipboard if I paste it manually - it's the automation that is flooring me! Cheers James
  15. Hi all, I am playing with this code. My aim is to get the data created by an autoit exe from vb.net. But i think this is not the safest method. Look at this code. And suggest me some better ideas. This is my autoit code #include <Clipboard.au3> _ClipBoard_Open (Null) _ClipBoard_Empty ( ) Local $s_path = "F:\MyFolder\Myfile.ini" Local $s_val = IniRead($s_path,"Mysection","Mykey","def") _ClipBoard_SetData($s_val, 1) _ClipBoard_Close ( ) ExitI have compile this autoit file as MyEXE.exe And this is my vb.net code Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click Dim text As String Process.Start("C:\Users\Vinod\Desktop\MyEXE.exe") text = Clipboard.GetText(TextDataFormat.Text) Label1.Text = text End SubThis is working, but if we copy something just before the button click, then we didn't get the proper value. So i am seeking any better ideas.
  16. Hello. I have designed and created a simple Clipboard manager in AutoIt. The project is open for any ideas, I hope you found it useful (and if you did please like my post so I can continue making software). Features [Done] Can store data in up to 5 slots. [Done] Options form. [Done] System Tray menu. [Done] Supports Hot-keys when pasting/copying data. [Done] Ability to copy and store text. [Done] Clipper theme. [Coming soon] Ability to copy and store files and folders. [Coming soon] Clipboard history form. ( currently logs history into a text file ) And Much Much More! Source Conclusion If you find any bugs or you have any ideas you are free to leave them here. Please give this script a try because it took time. If you enjoyed this script PLEASE smash the like button, Thanks! ALSO: Have any script ideas? Please share them with me because I will make them! Clipper.au3

  18. Hi Here is a UDF which allows you to have more than 1 item in the Clipboard and handle binaries not just text!. Can handle ALL data types text or images or binaries HTML yada yada. Gives autoIT functionality that potentially AHK can do , multiple paste buffers ClipboardEx.UDF - ; Clipboard 'Extended' creates a memory copy of current clipboard, and adds meta data like size and type sense. Credits to J Rowes for some of this code. ClipboardHistory.UDF: Simple LIFO History. ClipBoardHistoryGUI.UDF : Clipboard History viewer for history - can view items in history (mouse over) use mouse click to select an ltem and put on clipboard. Any files with the word 'example' in the name will run. Enjoy Ok version 2 - works on autoIT v 3.12. w7 added another example file. ClipboardHistoryV2.zip
  19. If you need to generate text data, this tool is for you. If you are gathering data from multiple sources and filtering it, or sorting it, this tool is for you. Generating text data manually can be time-consuming and mind-numbing. To ease my pain in this endeavour, I created this tool. I allows you to: - Gather data from multiple sources without having to paste it again and again in some editor before anything can be done to it. A user-defined string separator is used to separate the appended clipboard entries into records. - Or take a single line of formatted data and multiplying it by hundreds, then incrementing its lead field. Typical use: copy a line such as 2015/03/23 data 1 This is a test And this is a value where tabs separate data fields, for example. Then after generating a clipboard buffer where the line is repeated 10 times, and then incrementing it, the date at the start is detected and the day/month/year date value is correctly incremented This value is the output, and it is then placed into the clipboard: 2015/03/23 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/03/24 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/03/25 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/03/26 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/03/27 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/03/28 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/03/29 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/03/30 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/03/31 data 1 This is a test And this is a value 2015/04/01 data 1 This is a test And this is a value - Or if you are tring to filter records, enter a list of strings to find in the clipboard buffer and only keep the records that contain one of the find strings, or only keep the records that don't have one of the find strings This tool runs in the background and allows copying information that is scattered in documents or web pages etc to the clipboard by appending to what is already in the clipboard. To make the updated clipboard buffer more usable and separate records, a separator is used. The default separator is CRLF, but it can be changed to any user text string including CR or LF. Using the clipboard separator, records can be sorted as text up and down before pasting them, or you can copy a list and sort it in the clipboard before pasting it back sorted. Use hotkeys ctrl-alt-c to copy-append, ctrl-alt-x to cut-append, ctrl-alt-f to parse the clipboard text contents, and only keep the records that contain a find string ctrl alt d, prompt for find string, then find records in clipboard that contain the string and remove them only keeping other records in clipboard ctrl alt h, prompt for a find and a replace string, replace and update the clipboard ctrl-alt-r to run the current text selection as a command, ctrl-alt-F1 to display the list of commands, ctrl-alt-arrow up or down to sort up or down the entries, ctrl-alt-s to bring up the setup dialog, to set the separator, and other values. ctrl-alt-q to quit. There are a few more commands that I use to easily generate large amounts of testing data. ctrl-alt-g copies what is selected and prompts the user for the number of times the selection should be repeated. Then if each record starts with a number, or a date with format yyyy/mm/dd, or time, ctrl-alt-i increments the numeric or date or time value for each record. If these ctrl-alt keys are not convenient, you can change them in the first 8 HotKeySet statements of the code to fit what you need. This works fine for me on my windows 7 64 bit machines. If you find that you have problems on a different platform, please share your fixes.

Does anyone know what is wrong in my script?
  23. Hi... How to put data to clipboard in all available formats? I use _ClipBoard_GetData to save all formats data to files but when I try to put them again to clipboard using _ClipBoard_SetData, I have available only the last data format which I used. After that when I try put this data to "Microsoft Word" I get only "Cleaned" text format.

  24. TinyClipToSpeech v Read Clipboard Text Content using Sapi Voice Access to all commands by Tray menu. If you doesn't have Sapi5 installed, script ask for download it. I know there is already some Text to speech scripts, but i wanted an easy access ( clipboard content and tray menu ) and the possibility to change voice and settings while reading. Text can be displayed on desktop gradually as what is read. You can also save text to mp3 without need of read it. My preference goes to Scansoft voices, easy to found and install and with a good pronunciation qualty. As usual, some externals files are downloaded at first execution. Previous downloads : 199 Update of 2012-07-01 Source : TinyClipToSpeech v Executable : TinyClipToSpeech.exe.html (Once this html file downloaded, double click on it for start the download) Hope you like it !
  25. Hi all, I've been copying a lot of text from PDF files and other documents. Problem is, this text appears badly mangled when pasted again, causing formatting issues. I've been trying to write a script that would automatically reformat the copied string: #include <Clipboard.au3> #include <Misc.au3> If _Singleton("PasteModify", 1) = 0 Then MsgBox(0, "NOPE.", "Already Running.") Exit EndIf #NoTrayIcon Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1) $AboutTrayItem = TrayCreateItem("About") TrayCreateItem("") $ExitTrayItem = TrayCreateItem("Exit") TraySetState() $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll") Beep(1100,300) While 1 While _IsPressed("11",$hDLL) If _IsPressed("43",$hDLL) Then Beep(1300,150) ;Sleep(750) ;fixes the issue, but not very elegantly. $OriginalClipboardData = ClipGet() $ClipGetError = @error $RegexClipboardData = StringRegExpReplace($OriginalClipboardData, '[\r\n\t]+', ' ') $StripWSClipboardData = StringStripWS($RegexClipboardData,4) ClipPut($StripWSClipboardData) MsgBox(0,$ClipGetError,"ORIGINAL: " & $OriginalClipboardData & @CRLF & @CRLF & "POST-REGEX APPLIED: " & StringRegExpReplace($OriginalClipboardData, '[\r\n\t]+', ' ') & @CRLF & @CRLF & "STRIPWS APPLIED: " & $StripWSClipboardData & @CRLF & @CRLF & "END RESULT: " & ClipGet()) While _IsPressed("43",$hDLL) Sleep(250) WEnd EndIf WEnd Local $msg = TrayGetMsg() Select Case $msg = $AboutTrayItem MsgBox(64, "About", "When CTRL+C is pressed, a reformatted version of the string that has thereby been copied, without any newline characters, should be placed on the clipboard.") Case $msg = $ExitTrayItem ExitLoop EndSelect WEnd DllClose($hDLL) Beep(600,300) However, every now and then it seems like there's a conflict between this script Windows' access to the clipboard. If I don't include a long enough sleep (see script), ClipGet() will return that my clipboard is empty, even though it wasn't empty before and I have only selected new text and pressed Ctrl+C since. Any suggestions? Could I check for clipboard access perhaps...?
