Hi folks,
How do U copy a String to the clipboard. Allowing a user to paste the copied String, into the notepad for example, with the combination of ctrl+v.
Thankx

you can write the string to a file, if that is OK.

I didn't know this until a few minutes ago, but there's a standard clipboard class offered by Sun. Maybe this is what you're looking for.

Clipboard oughtta do it. Here's a rather more advanced example enabling cut & paste between Excel and a Swing table.
