Modify clipboard RTF contents

Recommended Posts

bobneumann

I'm trying to manipulate clipboard data that's in registered format called "Rich Text Format".

(I want to do a substitution/replace: Part of the RTF code is "\cf3" and I want to change it to "\cf0")

since Rich Text Format is not standard, I can't use clipget.

I've gotten far enough to know that I need to refer to the memory contents by its "unsigned integer value", which is returned to me by "_clipboard_registerformat"

But from there, how do I return the contents, do my search and replace, and then put my modified info back into the clipboard?

Any help or guidance appreciated.

Bob

#include-once

#include <Memory.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include<clipboard.au3>


$rtf_guid = _clipboard_RegisterFormat ("Rich Text Format")
MsgBox(4096,"rtf guid",$rtf_guid)
$contents= _clip_board_GetData($rtf_guid)
MsgBox(4096,"title",$contents)
Func _clip_board_GetData($rtf_guid = 1)
    Local $hMemory, $tData

    If Not _clip_board_IsFormatAvailable($rtf_guid) Then Return SetError(-1, 0, 0)
    If Not _clipboard_Open(0) Then Return SetError(-2, 0, 0)
    $hMemory = _clip_board_GetDataEx($rtf_guid)
    MsgBox(4096,"hmemory",$hMemory)
    _clipboard_Close()
    If $hMemory = 0 Then Return SetError(-3, 0, 0)
;Experimenting with trying to return the memory contents by converting it to text
;Switch $rtf_guid
    ;Case $CF_TEXT, $CF_OEMTEXT
            $tData = DllStructCreate("char Text[2097152]", $hMemory)
        ;$tData = DllStructCreate("char Text[8192]", $hMemory)
        ;Return DllStructGetData($tData, "Text")
    ;Case $CF_UNICODETEXT
            Return _WinAPI_WideCharToMultiByte($tData)
    ;Case Else
        ;Return $hMemory
;EndSwitch
EndFunc 

Func _clip_board_IsFormatAvailable($rtf_guid)
    Local $aResult

    $aResult = DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "IsClipboardFormatAvailable", "int", $rtf_guid)
    Return $aResult[0] <> 0
EndFunc

Func _Clip_Board_GetDataEx($rtf_guid = 1)
    Local $aResult

    $aResult = DllCall("User32.dll", "hwnd", "GetClipboardData", "int", $rtf_guid)
    
    Return SetError($aResult[0] = 0, 0, $aResult[0])
EndFunc
