Hi I am having a particular problem in retrieving data from system clipboard. the problem and the flow is as follows. First i invoke a method which gets the system clipboard from Toolkit and using its setContents method puts my own java object on the clipboard. Then I invoke a native method which creates some image using a native code and puts it on the system clipboard. Then lastly I invoke another method which calls getContents method of clipboard class to retrieve the image placed on the clipboard But what i get is the old java object which i put on the system clipboard earlier. this has already been listed as a fixed bug in jdk1.2.2 but i am still getting this problem. I am using Windows 2000 and JDK 1.4.0 Has somebody come across a simillar problem ? please help me regarding this. Regards, Padmanabh.
