Topic: Clipboard - new lines not working

meesha81 priority asked 1 year ago

Hi, you have updated clipboard since 6.3.0 to be able get new lines, but it is still not working.

\n nor br nor \r\n

I am not sure how there should be new line represented. All the time is one long line without new lines inserted to the clipboard.

I'm not sure if I understand correctly. Check out this snippet: I added an event listener on copy.mdb.clipboard to display in the console what is being copied.

The first console.log shows what e returns. e.copyText holds the value that was copied. You can see there that /n has been added.

The second console log returns e.copyText. In my case it returns text correctly. The newlines are where they should be, it doesn't return it to me as one line of text.

When I paste the text that was copied to, for example, VSCode, it pastes correctly, as it was in textarea.

Have we missed something? Is it working incorrectly for you?

Hi, okey, so it is propably working only via textarea. I have some p /p

with text content and I thought that content with newlines will be copied from any element, not only from textarea. I have to create duplicate data in hidden textarea and use hidden textarea as a source for copy to clipboard...
