Ctrl + C?

15 posts in this topic

I used MouseClickDrag and dragged over a string. then i used Send("^c") to let it click Ctrl + C to put the string in the clipboard. after that, i used $a = ClipGet() but then when i try to msgbox it out. there was nothing. how is this wrong? is it ^c??

ok, very simple.

"This is a string"

MouseClickDrag("left", "$x1", "$y1", "$x2", "$y2")

Send("^c")

$str = ClipGet()

just want to put the dragged string into the clipboard!

no, what i mean is, in a website. there are many text. what i want is to start dragging from a position and drag over to the end of the text. Then put that text inside a clipboard so i can paste it into a variable for other purposes! any idea around?

Your code should be working... What errors does it throw out?

do you use ctrl + c in ie?

i tried that by using Win32::GUITest (a perl package) SendKeys('^c');

just like your situation, nothing happended!

i also tried keybd_event function in C/C++ to simulate Ctrl + C in ie, but no result.

i don't try to use AutoIt3 to do that, but i think it will be the same.

finally, i have no choice, so i use menu command to enforce ie to copy that string.

send %ec to do that...

I've ran into this problem also, and what I did was tried pasting it to the clipboard several times in a row with short sleep statements between. I know there are many people who say this is a bad idea, but it did fix the problem. For those who wish to slam me to the curb......

Is there any way that you could just download the page using Inetget and parse out the part of it that you want?

I've had some problems with the clipboard in the past, and this is what I've done:

ClipPut("")
Send("^c")
$clip = ClipGet()
While $cip == ""
    $clip = ClipGet()
WEnd

I know it's longer, but it's usually that the contents just haven't been put into the clipboard by the time AutoIt gets to the next line, and tries to read it.

Edit:Not at all. We all make typos :D
