ClipboardHistory.UDF and ClipBoardEx.UDF clipboard Text and Binaries

Recommended Posts

ozmike

Hi 

 

Here is a UDF which allows you to have more than 1 item in the Clipboard and handle binaries not just text!.

Can handle ALL data types  text or images or binaries HTML yada yada.

Gives autoIT functionality that potentially AHK can do , multiple paste buffers

 

ClipboardEx.UDF - ; Clipboard 'Extended' creates a memory copy of current clipboard, and adds meta data like size and type sense. Credits to J Rowes for some of this code.

ClipboardHistory.UDF: Simple LIFO History.

ClipBoardHistoryGUI.UDF : Clipboard History viewer for history - can view items in history (mouse over) use mouse click to select an ltem and put on clipboard.

Any files with the word 'example' in the name will run.

Enjoy 

Ok version 2 - works on autoIT v 3.12. w7 added another example file.

​It's not broken, it's been changed since 3.3.8.x, that's a major difference. There's a list of script breaking changes in the help file for every release that has these types of changes. All you had to do was read the help file to find out what they were and change your script accordingly.


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 want to copy just the selected text in an input control and put it to the clipboard, but GuiCtrlRead() always reads all of the text in the control.
      In this test code, when I highlight a  portion of the left control's text and press ^C, I want to copy just that text to the clipboard; but when I highlight a  portion of the right control's text and press ^C, I want to copy all of its text to the clipboard.

      Hello.
      I fail trying to save content from WhatsApp other then plain text to a file that way, that non-char-content will be preserved in it's correct encoding. e.g. Emojis are spoiled.
      I've tried to do so using just filewrite() as well as forcing UTF
      #include <clipboard.au3> MsgBox(0,"Ready to read clipboard","Mark some WhatsApp content with non-char elements, e.g. Emojis, copy that to your clipboard (CTRL+c), then click OK here.") $ClipContent=_ClipBoard_GetData() ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $ClipContent = ' & $ClipContent & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF & "Extended: " & @extended & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $File="C:\temp\ClipSaveToFile.txt" $h=FileOpen($File,2+8+64) ; overwrite, create path, UTF16 FileWrite($h,$ClipContent) FileClose($h) $h=FileOpen($File,64) $NeuGelesen=FileRead($h) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $NeuGelesen = ' & $NeuGelesen & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF & StringLen ($NeuGelesen) & @CRLF ) ;### Debug Console FileClose($h) _ClipBoard_SetData($NeuGelesen) MsgBox(0,"Done","Re-read content of TEMP file was placed to the clipboard. Now paste this into WhatsApp. (Emojis will be spoiled)") I've also tried other encodings (16, 32, 64, 512)

      Or what is a different, functional approach to save WhatsApp Content to File in a way, to be able to to get it back to post it back to WhatsApp?

      Regards, Rudi.

      Hello to you, dear developers!
      Could you please tell me if there is an easy way to determine if the information was pasted from the clipboard?
      Without any variation of the insertion via Ctrl+V, or through the context menu.
      I revised the Help and many forum topics, but found nothing suitable.
      Can there be any WinAPI system events that determine this event?
