This won't be possible unless you have privileges and the user allows them too.

Is this for the Web?

You need special privledges for javascript to access your clipboard?

Yes - Granting JavaScript access to the clipboard.

yes ... thanks god ;) ... sometimes i really don't want someone to read my clipboard ... for example i would have copied email-addresses or other sensitive information to it and in case a webpage could just grab it it would be a serious security-issue ...

kind regards

there are workarounds.

flash can do it, and likely from a hidden frame.

as long as flash as enabled, i wouldn't fee too safe,

i noticed a site that had a button that said "place on clipboard".
i laughed and clicked it.
the joke was on me when i got to notepad.


here is working code i cleaned up for firefox:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. function copy(str) {
  3.    var D=document;
  4.     if(!copy.div) { copy.div = D.createElement('div'); D.body.appendChild(copy.div);  }
  6. flashVar = "Q1dTB3kAAAB4nKtgYI1nYOBfwMDAw8jgzPT//3975lAGBoYOdQYWhu\
  7. SczIKk/MSiFIac1Lz0kgyG4MriktRchuLUEme41DQmBg4GGRDJ6Cc0l4lBAibCzsDO\
  8. CDSJgwksyRwkzuAA5AIAd7oY/w==";
  10. copy.div.innerHTML =  '<embed src="'+flashVar+'" FlashVars="clipboard='+encodeURIComponent(str) +
  11.     '" width="0" height="0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>';
  12. }
it cannot read the clipboard, so i don't feel too bad about posting it.
