Clear the Clipboard
« on: December 23, 2013, 04:40:15 pm »
I wrote a data entry application using Slick-C and a form.  I want to put the tab-delimited data into the Windows Clipboard and paste it into an Excel spreadsheet.  I can append strings to the clipboard, but that leaves the previous clipboard content "on top."  I want to start with an empty clipboard.

Thank you, that had the code I needed (a call to "push_clipboard_itype.")  I had looked at that function before, but the terse documentation didn't explain what it did.
