Hi all! I'm a newbie with a worst english!

I'm using AutoIt to help my father during work.

When i copy a text with CTRL+C where does it go? Is there a way to read the text copied and put it in a variable?

MatrixG,

Welcome to the Autoit forum. :oops:

The text you copy with Ctrl-C goes to the clipboard and you can assign it to a variable with ClipGet. :bye:

I have the same question also newbie on my first 24 hours...;(

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("This is text that I will copy, once copied I want to save it to clipboard and then assign a variable to fetch it later as paste variable")
Send("{CTRLDOWN}a{CTRLUP}{CTRLDOWN}c{CTRLUP}{down}")
;Ok this is where I would like to assign the clipboard text to a variable, I think this is the getclip part?
Send(@LF)
Send(@LF)
;I would like the data to be pasted from a variable that was created from copied text to clipboard previously
Send("$var text from clipboard")

If anybody could just put the ClipGet in there that would be appreciated so I can see how it works in VERY, VERY simple terms for ignorant me!

Cheers!
