The Live Clipboard web control is a DHTML control that provides copy/paste functionality for data associated with a web page using the Live Clipboard XML data format. It consists of the following components:
- UI elements for displaying the Live Clipboard icon
- works in many browsers : IE 6, IE 7 Beta 2 Preview ,Mozilla Firefox , Safari .
- does not depend on installation of any client side applications or browser plug-ins,
- and it never gains access to the contents of the clipboard without explicit user action to paste.
However ,I did wonder how it would handle certain events ,which we will try out now shall we :
Hypothetical Situation 1
step1 : copy complex object /data
step2 : copy normal clipboard text
step3 : paste complex object / data
Result 1 : shows error on status bar .
Hypothetical Situation 2
step1 : copy normal clipboard text
step2 : copy complex object /data
step3 : paste normal clipboard text
Result 2 : copies gibberish.
im not surprised that it did throw up this behaviour , but what would be really great (and this is feedback ofcourse ) is a way to identify and seggregate the two so that both the hypothetical situations will still show positive results .
So "Live clipboard team " , if your listening 8 ) - heres a feature that im sure you guys will give a thought into before the release .
