sending info to windows clipboard

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Can I send info to the windows clipboard from Autoit? For example, can I send "test" to the windows clipboard and then Control V the word "test" to another application? The send command will not work with the application I am trying to send information to, it only accepts control c and control v. So in order to put info in this application I have to find a way to get it into the windows clipboard.... thanks

Hi zig05. Have you tried this?

SetEnv, clipboard, whatever you want to send to clipboard

(this will send anything you type after the setenv, clipboard, to the clipboard.

SetEnv, clipboard, whatever

; activate your program to paste into

send, {^v}

if that doesn't work, you can always try to send the %clipboard% variable

something like:

setenv, clipboard, test

winwaitactive, Untitled - Notepad

sleep, 1000

send, %clipboard%

will put the word test in the clipboard

wait until Notepad is active (you change that to whatever you are trying to paste into...)

pause just for a moment

and it will send the clipboard.

does this help any??
