Copying and Pasting text without "ocupying" my copy/paste ability

5 posts in this topic

Hello guys, I have a script that is running on a virtual machine, the scrip is sending emails and retrieves the destination adresses from a text file. 

For filling the "To" field I am using something like this

$emails = FileRead("insert directory here")    

ClipPut($emails)
ControlClick("", "", $toField)

Send("^v")

The thing is that while the script is running I am doing my work on my machine, and if I want to copy/paste something I'm having problems because when I click Ctrl + v on my keyboard I end up pasting the emails list.

Is there any way to copy/paste text without "ocupying" my copy/paste functionalities?

I hope I made myself clear.

 

Edit: and by the way, using 

ControlSend("", "", $toField, $emails)

is not a viable option because the emails list is very long, so that would spend a lot of time.

In your case looks like clipboard was just an option/method not a necessity so you can avoid using it.

However if you ever did find a situation where you do need to use the clipboard you can preserve its integrity with something like this:

#include <file.au3>

HotKeySet("^c", "get")

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd


Func Get()
$saveClip = ClipGet()
Send("^c")
Sleep(150)
$filesfolders = ClipGet()
ClipPut($saveClip)

MsgBox(0, "", "Current Clip" & @CRLF & @CRLF & $filesfolders)
EndFunc

I save the current clipboard to a variable before I use it, and then restore it at the end.  It lets me "copy" something for a function without disturbing the clipboard.
