Send ($VAR, 1) is the way to write it. Also for other functions it changes the way you have to type the varaible in. Its one things thats gets newbies like you and me.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Store the contents of a function in a variable

$var = function()

Write the contents of a variable to a window

Send($var,0) ; normal - default

Send($var,1) ; RAW

You can send the contents either normal or RAW. Normal treats any special formatting characters like you would expect send to treat them. ! = alt, ^ = Ctrl, etc.

RAW "keys what you see" and sends ^ as ^, ! as !, etc.

You don't have to specifiy the send mode, it will default to normal.

If the contents of your variable are nul or empty, then the send command won't do much. You may want to add a test for a nul string. In fact, testing whether or not the string contains something is an excellent error trap.

Dim $x

HotKeySet("ESC","StopScript")

While 1
   $x = ClipGet()
      If $x = "" then 
         MsgBox(0,"Empty","Clipboard was empty")
      Else
         MsgBox(0,"Clipboard","Clipboard Contents: " & $x)
      EndIf
WEnd

Func StopScript()
   Exit
EndFunc
