A document file to the clipboard

Recommended Posts

So, I'm in the middle of making a hotkey set-up for some people at work (no idea why, they just wanted it, so I said ok), but one of the items they want is, instead of a text-string, a file. A word document to be exact. Is there a way to put a file on the clipboard in autoit? I've looked at the Clipboard management UDF (specifically the _ClipBoard_SetData function) as well as the ClipGet and ClipPut functions, but I'm not really sure how that would work, if at all. Any help?

The current code is below. It's sloppy, I know, but I have problems with pasting data if I don't check it this way because these office computers aren't so great, and I'm kind of a hack and slash programmer. If you know a better way, I'm open to learning.

HotKeySet("^=", "Terminate")
HotKeySet("!1", "Paste1")
HotKeySet("!2", "Paste2")
HotKeySet("!3", "Paste3")
HotKeySet("!4", "Paste4")

$String1 = "Hotkey String 1"
$String2 = "Hotkey String 2"
$String3 = "Hotkey String 3"
$String4 = "Hotkey String 4"


While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

;==========================================

Func Paste1()
    Paste($String1)
    Sleep(500)
EndFunc  ;==>Paste1

Func Paste2()
    Paste($String2)
    Sleep(500)
EndFunc  ;==>Paste2

Func Paste3()
    Paste($String3)
    Sleep(500)
EndFunc  ;==>Paste2

Func Paste4()
    Paste($String4)
    Sleep(500)
EndFunc  ;==>Paste2

;==========================================

Func Terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc  ;==>Terminate

;==========================================

Func Paste($PasteItem)
    
    If $PasteItem = "" Or $PasteItem = Chr(0) Then
        Return (0)
    EndIf

    ClipPut($PasteItem)
    Local $temp = ClipGet()
    
    If $temp <> $PasteItem Then
        While $temp <> $PasteItem
            Sleep(50)
            ClipPut($PasteItem)
            Sleep(50)
            $temp = ClipGet()
            Sleep(50)
        WEnd
    EndIf
    
    Sleep(200)
    Send("^v")
    Sleep(500)

EndFunc  ;==>Paste
