ClipPut("") no longer clearing my clipboard - (Moved)


Go to solution Solved by SOLVE-SMART,

Recommended Posts

I use autoit for repetitive tasks involving the copying and pasting from excel to our companies ERP system. I would always use ClipPut("") to clear my clipboard to prevent error, but recently it has not been clearing my clipboard. Now, if I run my script 5-10 times, I get the error that space can't be cleared on my clipboard.

Hi @Maverick2002,

please share your code. This way we can possibly identify the problem.

Hi @Maverick2002,

I only could modify your script and test the part about ClipPut("") which works like expected on my maschine.
Did you change your AutoIt version? Which version do you have? Did you change anything else which could cause the strange behavior on your maschine?

You could use the Excel_UDF instead of these Send() actions to recieve your data.

Best regards
Sven

Hi @Maverick2002,

definitely not nice, but please try this:

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Terminate")

Func _Terminate()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func _SendWithDelay($sKey, $iHowOften = 1, $iDelay = 120)
    For $i = 1 To $iHowOften Step 1
        Send($sKey)
        Sleep($iDelay)
    Next
EndFunc

Global Const $sExcel   = '279.xlsx - Excel'
Global Const $sGenesis = 'Session A - Genesis'

Global $i = 0

While $i < 2                    ; Put total number of cells needing copied
    WinActivate($sExcel)        ; Go to Excel
    ClipPut("")
    _SendWithDelay("^c")

    WinActivate($sGenesis)      ; Go to Genesis
    _SendWithDelay("{I}")       ; Inquire
    _SendWithDelay("^v")

    _SendWithDelay("{ENTER}")   ; Paste
    _SendWithDelay("C")
    _SendWithDelay("{TAB}")

    WinActivate($sExcel)
    _SendWithDelay("{RIGHT}")
    ClipPut("")
    _SendWithDelay("^c")

    _SendWithDelay("{DOWN}{LEFT}")
    WinActivate($sGenesis)

    _SendWithDelay("^v")
    _SendWithDelay("{DOWN 2}{NUMPADADD}")
    _SendWithDelay("{ENTER 6}")

    $i = $i + 1
WEnd

I just want to know if the following two lines, which are removed in my snippet above, cause your problem?

Quote

Opt("SendKeyDelay",40) ;milliseconds delay between key strokes
Opt("SendKeyDownDelay",0)

Best regards
Sven

Moved to the appropriate AutoIt General Help and Support forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:
