Automate – View Clipboard Contents

This task will populate a variable with the text contents of your current clipboard using the Clipboard() function. The Clipboard() function both sets data to the clipboard similar to performing Control + C or Edit|Copy menu command, and returns data from the clipboard similar to performing a Control + V or Edit|Paste menu command. This can be tested by copying different text to your clipboard during each run.

You can use this bot to:

  • Get the contents of the clipboard
  • Use Control ­+ C in a text and then obtain the contents of clipboard
