Copy/Pasting strings to/from clipboard on HTML5 target
I have a project targeted to HTML5, and I'm curious as to how I can copy or paste text from the clipboard. I believe I've tried using openfl, lime, perhaps even js.html, but I haven't been able to get anything to take. I'd like to generate a string and copy it, then paste it somewhere else to an FlxInputText object.
Thanks for any help!
Or, perhaps, any ideas on where to look?
I'd just like to be able to insert text without having the user type it out in it's entirety. I can retrieve a string through the console output with trace, but whenever I try to access the Clipboard, it's always a blank. If someone knows other ways to accept user input, please let me know.
Perhaps you could share some code of what you've tried so far? :)
Yeah, for sure!
Using openfl didn't seem to set the paste text
Both traces using lime return null
trace(lime.system.Clipboard.text); lime.system.Clipboard.text = "Lime Clipboard Test"; trace(lime.system.Clipboard.text);
I believe I tried implementing js.html.ClipboardEvent in some way, but had no success. I'm probably unfamiliar with integrating it appropriately into a haxe project.
If there's any easier way using a different target like Flash, or another target that would work through a browser, I'm open to taking that approach.

You need to use <set name="next"/> before adding flixel on project.xml for clipboard to work.
