problem with clipget()

3 posts in this topic

I want to use clipget() to retrieve some text from the clipboard after highlighting and copying it. This is the code that I'm using:

;main body of script

func getvalue($x1,$y1,$x2,$y2)
    mouseclickdrag("left",$x1,$y1,$x2,$y2,5)
    send("^c")
    return clipget()
endfunc

About a third of the time, I get an error message saying that "OpenClipboard Failed". Why is this error happening? I'm using 3.1.1.18.

Try a sleep(50) between ^c and clipget... give the system some time to complete one clipboard operation before asking it to do another. You might also need to add a sleep in the part of your "main body of script" right where the function returns to... before using the returned value.
