working with selected text by hitting a hotkey
Posted on 2000-01-02
MFC app running: text selected in OTHER application (whatever app) & I hit a hotkey.
How should I work on the selected text?
I just want direction, not full code.
Any of the answers will be considered.
1a. Should I save clipboard, add text to clip, then when done restore it?
1b. If so, please supply pointer to restoring clipboard without corrupting it.
2. Any other way to work with selected text in external app, without working with clipboard at all?
3. Maybe there are ways to work with "multiple clipboards?"
