There are three functions available:
This function puts text on the clipboard.
This function retrieves text from the clipboard.
This function retrieves the length of the text on the clipboard.
If any of these functions return FALSE, then there was an error during the clipboard operation; otherwise, the operation was successful. In the future, I'd like to expand this into a more robust clipboard control class, perhaps using some of the other code that exists here on Codeguru. If anyone would like to take a stab at that before I do, please send your results back up when you have something!
Here is an example of how this class might be used:
#include "Clipboard.h" : : : // Write text to the clipboard char pastebuf; strcpy (pastebuf, "Put this on the clipboard."); CClipboard::SetText(strText); : : : // Retrieve text from the clipboard char copybuf; CClipboard::GetText(copybuf, 256);
