{On_Clipboard_Change}

Syntax

{On_Clipboard_Change= Event_Name }

Arguments

Event_Name

The name of an event in the Xdialog script.

Description

Fires an event when the Clipboard contents change.

Example 

dim clipb as C = "" 
clipb = ""
  
dlg_title = "Clipboard watcher" 
ui_modeless_dlg_box(dlg_title,<<%dlg% 
{on_clipboard_change=clip} 
[%M%.50,30clipb]; 
<&Close!close> 
%dlg%,<<%code% 
if a_dlg_button = "close" .or. a_dlg_button = "" then 
a_dlg_button = "" 
ui_modeless_dlg_close(dlg_title) 
else if a_dlg_button = "clip" 
a_dlg_button = "" 
if clipboard.Has_Data()

You only want to respond to clipboard events if text was placed onto the clipboard. If, for example, a bitmap was placed on the clipboard, you want to ignore it. clipboard.Has_Data()(with no arguments) will return TRUE (.T.) if the clipboard contains text.

clipb = clipboard.Get_Data()+crlf()+replicate("=",30)+crlf()+clipb 
 end if 
end if 
%code%)

Limitations

Desktop applications only
