Get ClipboardText over recorded shortcut cmd+C

Post by urbach1907 » Thu Nov 22, 2007 9:24 am

Hi folks,

In a tested application I want store a marked text with a shortcut to the clipboard. When I try to get this back in .NET via Clipboard.GetText(); it didn't give back the copied string.

Regards,
Frank

I just tried to copy a portion of text from the Windows Notepad by sending the key combination "Ctrl + C":

Code: Select all

Application.SendKeys("{CTRLDOWN}c{CTRLUP}{CTRLDOWN}v{CTRLUP}");
string clipboardText= System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.GetText();
That worked for me.

Can you please provide us your test code, perhaps we can reproduce the error that way.

Thanks for your reply. I had some trouble with the right shortcut for marking the text. I solved this and now it works.
Cool tool!
