clipboard

Post by jdmarsh50 » 11 Oct 2018, 19:58

Code: Select all

^F4::
Send,{tab}{tab}{tab}clipboard{tab}{enter}

I'm trying to use the CTRL-F4 key combo to send the following: TAB TAB TAB "contents of the windows clipboard" TAB ENTER


I have the TABS and ENTER keys working... what do I do to make the word "clipboard" in my script the windows clipboard variable?


Thanks

Code: Select all

;more forwards compatible:
Send, % "{Tab 3}" Clipboard "{Tab}{Enter}"

;also:
Send, {Tab 3}%Clipboard%{Tab}{Enter}
Cheers.
