Hi Experts,

I have the code below working in IE, but not in Fireiox and Chrome. Can anyone tell me why and how to fix it?

Thank you

<html>

<body>

<input type="text" id="txt" value="abcdef...xyz">

<input type="BUTTON" onClick="ClipBoard()" value="Copy to Clipboard" >

<TEXTAREA ID="holdtext" STYLE="display:none;">
</TEXTAREA>

</body>


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

    function ClipBoard() {
        holdtext.innerText = txt.value;
        Copied = holdtext.createTextRange();
        Copied.execCommand("Copy");
    }

</SCRIPT>



</html>

It looks like your code is not correct or complete enough.  See here for Mozilla / Firefox info: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Rich-Text_Editing_in_Mozilla#Executing_Commands

This page https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Rich-Text_Editing_in_Mozilla#Executing_Commands includes a complete Rich-Text editor at the bottom of the page that includes the command you are trying to use.  Make up a test page and try their code.
