Help with copying and pasting into variables

11 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

The code below is intended to copy and paste highlighted text but I've been running into trouble.

The Text is already highlighted via the Mouseclicks and I've tried selecting text myself and then running code but I've no such luck. The issue is with the send("^C") part of the code I believe because ClipGet() works when I manually copy something. Any help is appreciated.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

   Sleep(1000)
   MouseClick("left",1162, 497,2,1)
      send("^C")
      sleep(2000)
      $Time = ClipGet()
      MsgBox(1,"",$Time,0)

 

Update : I've just ran Send("^c") on its own in blank page in autoit to see what it entered and the photo below shows just that.

Doesn't the mouseclick cancel the selection?


Roses are FF0000, violets are 0000FF... All my base are belong to you.

They aren't the problem , I've tried it with and without the mouseclicks and it still doesnt work.

I just tested your code several times

doublelcick on sleep

and then run this code:

;~    Sleep(1000)
;~    MouseClick("left",1162, 497,2,1)
      send("^c")
      sleep(2000)
      $Time = ClipGet()
      MsgBox(1,"",$Time,0)

I get a message box with "sleep"

Try using a small c

send("^c")

 

Just tried and it worked, thank you, this just makes me confused as to why it works with a small c and not a capital C now, any ideas?

Good point, I missed that 2 there :) I was going to suggest lowercase c as well, but i tested it in notepad and there it works fine with ^C.

@Estimize Where are you copying from? Is it a default windows control or maybe some special gui? Try playing with SendKeyDownDelay by setting Opt("SendKeyDownDelay", 50) (or higher values) on top of your script, some interfaces need more time to register the keypress than the default 5 msec.

The capital C implies pressing the shift key.

From the Send() help file:

Quote

N.B. Some programs are very choosy about capital letters and ALT keys, i.e., "!A" is different from "!a". The first says ALT+SHIFT+A, the second is ALT+a. If in doubt, use lowercase!

      This is my first time here so please dont bombard me that what a silly question I am asking!!
      I have 500 rows (A1:A500) in a spreadsheet and I just want to copy one by one row and then paste into another application and then press enter, loop should repeat this until finishes all 500 rows.
      I have looked at clipget(), clip(put() but dont know how to select next row in next turn. I also looked at Array to store but again no luck. Can some guide me please..

      For proper functioning of AutoIt script it's need to be close parent Excel workbook, so this closing Excel action is written in AutoIt script itself.

      I am maintaining all the reusable code in a separate file as library.au3.
      In that file I have referenced some dependent files using fileinstall, so that they will be extracted when necessary.
       
      Problem is, if I use a function in the library.au3 in another script which doesn't require this dependent file, as I am including the whole file using include tag, it is embedding that file also.
      Is there any way to exclude that.
