Hot to save the windows CTRL+C copy command to a var


Recommended Posts

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!

Here are a solution to read the values from chrome browser into a file 

; Mouseclick in the left corner
 MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT ,130, 200, 1, 1)
SLEEP(20)

Send("{CTRLDOWN}a{CTRLUP}")
sleep(300)
Send("{CTRLDOWN}c{CTRLUP}")
sleep(200)
Local $sData = ClipGet()

MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT ,130, 200, 1, 1)
SLEEP(20)

logfile("sData: " & $sData)
 

;***********************************************************************
Func logfile($string)
;***********************************************************************
    Local $FileName = "c:\Versand\Logfiles\setBillbeeID.log"
    Local $handle = 0

    ; Open the file for creating or append
    if FileExists ($FileName) Then
        $handle = FileOpen($FileName, $FO_APPEND)
    Else
        $handle = FileOpen($FileName, $FO_OVERWRITE)
    EndIf

    If $handle = -1 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "An error occurred whilst writing the temporary file.")
        Return False
    EndIf

    ; Write data to the file using the handle
    FileWriteLine($handle, $string)

    ; Close the handle returned by FileOpen.
    FileClose($handle)

    ; Delete the file.
    ;FileDelete($FileName)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

@Frank70, Guess you didn't see that the question is from more than 9 years ago, so really doesn;t need to be answered anymore! ;)
