    copy to clipboard

    Is it possible to make a button that when clicked, copies text from a box.
    Instead of manually selecting the contents and then copying with something like control+c.
    I don't know if this is possible with html alone, could anyone help?

    Hi funfunfun,
    no not really in any cross browser way. IE will let you do something but FF wont give access to the clipboard.

    The best you can really get is to select all and then get the user to do the rest.
    That is if you want cross browser of course!

    I believe with version 7, (might be with IE 6 after SP2 on XP) will popup a warning asking if you want the site to modify the clipboard.
    Logic without the fatal effects.
