copy to clipboard

hello everyone

in my website i use the methods ".execCommand(' SelectAll')" and
".execCommand(' Copy')" to copy a defined area to the clipboard, that works
fine, but now i wanted to make my website compatible with macintosh.

the same functions dont work on a mac, so i am asking if anyone knows how
the "copy to clipboard" function (for text and images!) works on macintosh
or if it works at all on a mac.

thank you very much

execCommand is IE/Win only I think (unless you want to use it in an
editable iframe where Mozilla since 1.4 supports it too) so it is not
Macintosh that is the problem but simply it depends on whether the
browser supports the API document.execCo mmand.

I don't think any browser but IE/Win supports execCommand and I doubt
any browser besides IE/Win does expose the clipboard to unprivileged
script. I am pretty sure neither Opera nor Mozilla provide clipboard
access, I only know about the Windows versions but as both produce
cross-platform browsers I don't think their Mac versions differ.

I'm trying to come up with a way to create a contextmenu that will do all the "standard" functions (cut, copy, paste, undo, etc). There seems to be a lot of information out there - but nothing seems to work for me. A few people refer to txt.copy() txt.paste(), etc. I'm not sure if those are old functions, but they do not work for me. I've tried textbox1.selectall() - that works in selecting

Hello All, I¡¯m using a context menu associated with some pictureboxes to provide copy/paste functionality. Copying the image to the clipboard was easy. But pasting an image from the clipboard is proving to be more difficult. These pictureboxes are bound to an AccessDB.
