Reading items in Windows Clipboard...is this even possible?
Posted on 2013-05-16
I am trying to make a tool that will allow me to capture my Ctrl + C keystrokes and save the data in a file so I can access any time. I was thinking I could read items from the clipboard somehow in code and then export the items to an xml file.
My tool would run minimized (VB.NET app). Any time I click Ctrl+C, the tool would save that to a file and my app would be able to retrieve items, even after the computer is shut down.
Is it possible to manipulate the windows clipboard in code? If so can you point me in the right direction. I have been researching and haven't found anything quite right.
