Hello,

Is there any way to determine the file size of the item in the clipboard?

this might work

$sizeme = ClipGet()

$sizeclip = FileGetSize($sizeme)
MsgBox(0, "Size in clipboard:", $sizeclip)

are you dealing with just text? you could use this:

$len = StringLen(clipget())
MsgBox(0, "String length is:", $len)

unfortunately it's a picture. I'm just looking for a slipshod way to ensure the picture in the clipboard is not the same as the one I took a screenshot of earlier in the script.

Thanks for your help

Thanks autosc, I had already tried that earlier and it just reads 0 for the file size each time.

Try this :

Manually copy any image file . (on Clip)

now run the script ! It worked for me !

Only you should find a beter way to put the images on the clip !

It's work because the clipboard contain path to this file, and FileGetSize work with paths, not with data..

Here somewhere (on the forum) there is function that save image from clipboard to file, this might help (save it to file and check his size), try to search here (+save +image +clipboard etc).
