How To Paste Text To String Programmatically

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody. I have an interesting question for you.

I am trying to paste text from the clipboard into a string programmatically. The idea is to be able to push a button on the panel and paste the text from the clipboard to a string. Is this even possible?

There is a way to do this but you have to trick LabVIEW. The implementation attached is in LV60. It accomplishes the paste by simulating the keypress combination "ctrl+V". You should also make the string field have the keyfocus.

Let me know if you have problems running it. It ran fine in LV6.1 and I did a "save to previous" to 6.0 but I cannot try it in that version.
