Is there a way to read clipboard formats other than text?

3 posts in this topic

Is there a way to read non-text formats from the clipboard? I want to be able to select some text in a web browser page, copy it to the clipboard, then parse any hyperlinks that it contains. But the ClipGet() function seems to return the plain text version of the clipboard contents, i.e. does not contain the links. Will I need to use Dale's IE Automation library?

TIA

Nick

You could use send("+{INS}") to paste the contents of the clipboard into a file or better still use ControlSend.

IE.au3 would probably be best or you could use InetGet()

Either way, take a look at this link:
