Re: How to create custom COPY/PASTE shortcut button.

Hi @rgane 

 

Could you share more detail about your requirements?

For the moment, you can try to use Variable to save the copy value, and assign the Variable to other Text box Default property to implement the Copy/Paste button.

A simple test:

1. set Copy/Paste button OnSelect: Set(Var_Copy,TextInput1.Text)

2. set TextInput2 Default: If(!IsBlank(Var_Copy),Var_Copy)

Re: How to create custom COPY/PASTE shortcut button.

Cheers,

 

This question has been around my head for two days and has no answer. The solution shown here only reads the value of a textbox to put it in a variable associated with another textbox. What the user asks is if it is possible for example to copy the coordinates of a point in google maps, return to my app and with a button, paste what it copies in some textbox for example. Is there a way to access the clipboard and put the content in some control of my form?

 

Thank you
