Put data from file to the clipboard in all available formats?

Recommended Posts

Hi...

How to put data to clipboard in all available formats?
 
I use _ClipBoard_GetData to save all formats data to files but when I try to put them again to clipboard using _ClipBoard_SetData, I have available  only the last data format which I used. After that when I try put this data to "Microsoft Word" I get only "Cleaned" text format. 
When I the set last format as a HTML and I put to "Micorosft Word" everything fine, but I can't put to Notepad (I get empty value). 
 
When I doing this same with _ClipBoard_GetDataEx to save data to memory object (not to file) and put them again using _ClipBoard_SetDataEx all data formats are available...
 
Help?

Post the code you're using, without knowing what you're doing and how we're only guessing.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Sorry...

#include <Clipboard.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

$_ClipData = _ClipGet()
_ArrayDisplay($_ClipData)
_ClipEmpty()
_ClipPut($_ClipData)
$_ClipData = _ClipGet()
_ArrayDisplay($_ClipData)

Func _ClipGet()
    Local $RECORDS[1][2]
    $RECORDS[0][0] = 0
    Local $iFormat, $Errors = 0, $iData

    Do
        If Not _ClipBoard_Open(0) Then Return -1
        $iFormat = _ClipBoard_EnumFormats ($iFormat)
        _ClipBoard_Close()
        If $iFormat <> 0 Then
            ReDim $RECORDS[UBound($RECORDS) + 1][2]
            $RECORDS[UBound($RECORDS) - 1][0] = $iFormat
            $RECORDS[UBound($RECORDS) - 1][1] = _ClipBoard_GetData($iFormat)
            $RECORDS[0][0] += 1
        EndIf
    Until $iFormat = 0
    Return $RECORDS
EndFunc

Func _ClipPut($_ClipArray)
    If Not IsArray($_ClipArray) Then Return -1
    For $Step = 1 To $_ClipArray[0][0]
        _ClipBoard_SetData($_ClipArray[$Step][1], $_ClipArray[$Step][0])
    Next
EndFunc

Func _ClipEmpty()
    _ClipBoard_Open(0)
    _ClipBoard_Empty()
    _ClipBoard_Close()  
EndFunc
 
When I copy data from a website I receives formats: 13, 493811, 16, 1, 7
 
When I re-paste the data and get the data again receives formats 4, 16, 1, 13.

      Hi,
      from other postings here as a start I'm quite Close to my Goal of putting formatted text to the clipboard:
      #include-once #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiRichEdit.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $g_idLblMsg, $g_hRichEdit Example("The first text will be formatted ""as is""" & @CRLF & _ "(Default Font and font size)", "This text is formatted differently") MsgBox(0, "Rich Text copied", "Formatted Text put to clipboard") Func Example($TextDefault, $TextCourier) Local $hGui, $iMsg, $idBtnNext, $iStep = 0 $hGui = GUICreate("Example (" & StringTrimRight(@ScriptName, StringLen(".exe")) & ")", 320, 350, -1, -1) $g_hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, $TextDefault, 10, 10, 300, 220, BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL)) $g_idLblMsg = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 235, 300, 60) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetSel($g_hRichEdit, -1, -1) ; set selection behind last CHAR in RTF_EDIT _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetFont($g_hRichEdit, 8, "Courier New") ; change font to 8pt, Courier New _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendText($g_hRichEdit, @CRLF & $TextCourier) _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetSel($g_hRichEdit, 0, -1) ; select all the content of the RTF_EDIT _GUICtrlRichEdit_Copy($g_hRichEdit) ; put the selection to the clipboard EndFunc ;==>Example  
      Finally the clipboard content has to hold pre-formatted data to be pasted into an email body. for the 2nd part I'd like to add a frame around the text, like I did manually before taking this screenshot.



      Any suggestions, or maybe some absolutely different Approach?
       
      CU, Rudi.

      Hello all!   I'm stuck at a seemingly simple part of my script. Using IE, I'm filling out a web form that involves clicking a "Browse" button and selecting a file. Once the file explorer dialog opens, however, I am unable to control it.
      I have a string, which is the name of the file I want, and I'm trying to insert it into the 'File name:' text box in the dialog (which already has focus), but it doesn't get inserted. I've tried ClipPut and Send. 

      What's even more concerning is, when I close the dialog, the string is then pasted into the very next window that has focus, which is often SciTE. It's like that Browse's file open dialog halts all processes. Once it's closed, the script continues.
      ;~ Open a IE window and navigate to the login page. Global $oIE = _IECreate($urlBBLogin) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Recognize the form on this page (login input boxes). Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "login") Local $oTextLogin = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "user_id") Local $oTextPass = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "password") ;~ Enter the Automation user credentials into the form. _IEFormElementSetValue($oTextLogin, $bbUsername) _IEFormElementSetValue($oTextPass, $bbPassword) ;~ Click the Login button. _IEFormSubmit($oForm) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Navigate to the feedfile upload page. _IENavigate($oIE, $urlUpload) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Click the Browse button Local $Browse = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "feedFile_chooseLocalFile") _IEAction($Browse, "Click") Local $Browse = WinWait("Choose File to Upload") ;~ Open the file we created. WinActivate($Browse) Send($finalFile) Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any ideas to get around it? Am I approaching this the wrong way?
      Any support is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.

      Programs like Ditto are a great augmentation to the Windows clipboard where it keeps a list of items you copy and paste and you can go back to days, weeks, months later. It also comes in handy for multiple copied items you need to paste over and over again.
      https://sourceforge.net/projects/ditto-cp/
      Windows 10 also now has a clipboard history capability (though not as robust, I think, as Ditto).
      https://www.windowscentral.com/how-use-new-clipboard-windows-10-october-2018-update
      I would like to simulate this type of clipboard history into my own apps independent of Windows' clipboard, but I haven't a clue as to where to begin.
      Thank you in advance for any suggestions, examples, shelved codes. ☺

      I'm creating a tool which automatically saves screenshots.  I've found that some images appear corrupt after saving.  I've narrowed the source down to screenshots taken from within an RDP session via the Ctrl+Alt+Plus (PrtScn equivalent) and Ctrl+Alt+Minus (Alt+PrtScn equivalent) key combos.
      Here is the example code:
      #include <ClipBoard.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> If _ClipBoard_IsFormatAvailable($CF_BITMAP) Then ConsoleWrite("+Bitmap found on Clipboard" & @CRLF) If Not _ClipBoard_Open(0) Then MsgBox(16, "Error", "_ClipBoard_Open failed") Exit EndIf $hClipboardImage = _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_BITMAP) _ClipBoard_Close() _GDIPlus_Startup() $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hClipboardImage) $sCLSID = _GDIPlus_EncodersGetCLSID("JPG") _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFileEx($hBitmap, @ScriptDir & "\" & TimerInit() & "_Clipboard_Image.jpg", $sCLSID, 0) _GDIPlus_BitmapDispose($hBitmap) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() Else MsgBox(48, @ScriptName, "No Bitmap found on Clipboard") EndIf If you copy a local window to the clipboard via Alt+PrtScn the above works fine.  If you copy a window in an RDP session via Ctrl+Alt+Minus it saves the image, but the left-hand edge appears to contain a few pixels sliced off the right-hand side of the bitmap (see two attached images for examples; one good, one bad).  If you paste directly into MSPaint, the image appears correctly, so the clipboard contents is good. It seems to be the process of converting the bitmap handle to an image file via GDIPlus which corrupts it (though I may be wrong about this).
      I've tried inspecting the contents of the clipboard via the _ClipBoard_EnumFormats example and I've noticed the clipboard from the RDP session contains a couple more formats;
      Local:
      Clipboard formats ..: 3 Clipboard format 1 .: Bitmap Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 RDP:
      Clipboard formats ..: 5 Clipboard format 1 .: DataObject Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 Clipboard format 4 .: Ole Private Data Clipboard format 5 .: Bitmap However the _ClipBoard_GetDataEx function is specifying the $CF_BITMAP constant for the format, which both instances contain, so I'm not sure the extra formats have any impact?
      I've tried using a combination of _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_DIB) and _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory in an effort to write the binary directly to a file, instead of using a bitmap handle, however this doesn't appear to work and just returns a zero and doesn't set @error to anything, which isn't covered in the help file (a failure should return a zero and set the @error level to something).
      I've hunted around the forums and tried everything I can think of. I can normally figure most things out without posting but I've been dipping in and out of this script for a few months now and have finally thrown in the towel and must ask you guys for help, which isn't a decision I take lightly.  Your help is, as always, greatly appreciated.
