Hello,

I want to create a simple application like this :

It has a button.

If I click that button, then it will send a text to the clipboard system.

So, if I press CTRL-V, that text will be pasted to notepad for example.

Anyone know how to send text (multiple lines) to clipboard system ?

thanks

you'd be better using #13#10 for the line  break.   #13 is a carriage return and #10 is a line feed.   Some programs will accept an either/or/or both combination, but there are some others that MUST have the pair.  Notepad itself isn't too fussy, but it's best to be complete.
