Paste HTML source from clipboard

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I want to paste an html source from clipboard to a window, but I don't have any idea how to do it.

Here is the script that I wrote

#include <INet.au3>
ClipPut (_INetGetSource('www.google.com'))
ClipGet ()

;A short paste via keyboard. It's not working
Send ("{CTRLDOWN}")
Send ("V")
Send ("{CTRLUP}")

Do you know any other command that pastes from clipboard?

Send("^v") and the ClipPut() is doing you no good in this case. You will probably need a time delay between the ClipPut() and The Send() lines as well.

Edit: After re-reading your post, does the window that you want to paste to have an identifiable control where you want the text placed? If the answer is yes, then it's a different process.

Send ("^v") isn't working.

No, the window that I want to paste to doesn't have an identifiable control.

That sometimes is the case but just to be sure, open the window and use Au3Info.exe to see what that returns.

There is the possibility that the ^v is being sent before the window is active.

What happens if you run this

#include <INet.au3>
ClipPut (_INetGetSource('www.google.com'))
WinActivate("My Window Title")
WinWaitActive("My Window Title")
Sleep(2000); 2 seconds to make sure the cursor is where you want the text
Send("^v")

I tried it, and there is no reaction.

Try this just as a test.

ClipPut( "This is just a test string")

Sleep(10000) ; 10 second delay use it to open the window and place your cursor where you want it.

Send("^v") ;; There is a difference between Send("^v") and Send("^V") so get it right.
