ScreenCapture to Clipboard?

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone.

I'm trying to get take a screenshot of a specific region on the screen and put it in the clipboard, but without saving it to any file, just put it on the clipboard so i can simply ctrl+v (paste) it anywhere i want.

I've been reading ScreenCapture and _Clipboard_SetData, but nothing works.

Can anyone help me out with this please?

Thank you.

Well, without seeing your code I don't know what exactly you were doing wrong. This code I found here works for me.

#Include <Clipboard.au3>
#Include <ScreenCapture.au3>
Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)
Local $HBITMAP = _ScreenCapture_Capture()
_ClipBoard_SetDataEx($HBITMAP, $CF_BITMAP)


I just added the coordinates to select the part of the screen to _ScreenCapture_Capture and it's done.

Thank you so much Thanubis!
