Increasing clipget value

10 posts in this topic

hi, there been looking for some information relevent to increasing the values within the clipboard.

basically i want to copy a value onto clipboard, then increase the amount by x value (100 for example)

can't seem to find anything close to my desired effect via google, and i'm unsure exactly what functions would be needed.

if anyone is able to point me in the right direction, i would appreciate it greatly.

thank you

You can't do it directly in the clipboard, you have to do it externally then repaste it to the clipboard. Unless there's a way to do it in memory, which would be more work than you'd save by doing it normally.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

yeah, sorry i was expecting it to be done externally, but wasn't sure how it would be done.

i've been having issues finding simlar functions from which i can learn from as to how to do this.

i know it probably so simple, and i'm probably over thinking it.

just unsure how to tackle it.

while 1
$clipvalue = ClipGet() +100

ClipPut ( "$clipvalue" )
Sleep (10)
WEnd

this is what i have so far, but keep getting $clipvalue as the clipboard result.

any ideas where i'm going wrong ?

Don't put quotes around the variable name, just use ClipPut($clipvalue).

getting weird results.

100

1000

3100

starting at 100, and copying last numbers while running script give these results instead of;

100

200

300

almost seems like it needs reset

Using your posted script example I'm getting

100

200

300

...

Here's an example using your While loop, but modified slightly to make it a bit more efficient.

While 1
    $clipvalue = ClipGet()
    ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $clipvalue = ' & $clipvalue & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
    ClipPut(ClipGet() + 100)
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

How are you reading and displaying the clipboard, because my script doesn't give those results.
