Could any one please help me in, how to copy a image to clipboard using javascript in FIREFOX browser?

This i could get in IE with the following code, but it dint work in FIREFOX.
function copyToClpBrd()
{

var div = document.getElementById('chartId');
div.contentEditable = 'true';
var controlRange;
if (document.body.createControlRange) {
controlRange = document.body.createControlRange();
controlRange.addElement(div);
controlRange.execCommand('Copy');
}
div.contentEditable = 'false';

No, nor is there in any other browser. JavaScript in general can't access the clipboard.

createControlRange is a non-standard, IE-only method.

If you search Google for Firefox JavaScript copy clipboard you will see how to do it. Problem is security settings. most browsers have this disabled by default.

Java is running on the server and has no connection to the client. You can try to worrk with an applet, but that also has issues with support on the browser.
