Copy output to clipboard?

Copy output to clipboard?

I was wondering if it were possible to place the output variable onto
the Windows clipboard. It seems like it would be possible. I know the
user can just highlight and Ctrl+C, but we're using a touch screen and
selecting text isn't as easy as it should be.

Thanks you.

Re: Copy output to clipboard?

Check out the ftp archives ftp://ftp.pica.army.mil/pub/labview there is a
vi for reading and writing to the clipboard. I have a copy on my computer
if you can't find it there, just email me at jeffbinslo@netzero.net

Re: Copy output to clipboard?

There's also an Invoke Node method for the LabVIEW Application class called Clipboard >> Read from Clipboard and Clipboard >> Write to Clipboard. Both accomplish the same thing, are easier to use, and are platform independent! Hope this helps!

Note that this is LabVIEW 8 only though.

Unfortunately I'm always using LV 5.1 !! So clipboard.llb is better for me. Thanks for application class example and for forum
