How Used Clipboard? [QML]

Hi, I was using the following command to copy the label information





              Label {
              id: myTextArea
              text: _hardware.deviceName
              textStyle.fontSize: FontSize.PointValue
              textStyle.fontSizeValue: 8.5
              textStyle.color: Color.White
              horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Right
contextActions: [
ActionSet {	
ActionItem {
title: "Copy"
onTriggered: {


 But in the action "onTriggered" that command is not to copy the text of my label. Whoever helps me complete this? Greetings.

Re: How Used Clipboard? [QML]

Read this documentaion :


Clipboard - Cascades™ for BlackBerry 10


These Posts:




Clipboard - Insert Utf8/Unicode characters to clipboard


As you can see, you will have to edit .pro, .hpp & .cpp files to access Clipboard!


Good Luck.

Re: How Used Clipboard? [QML]

Use a cpp function for this,and make that function invokable

void App::copytext(QByteArray text)
	bb::system::Clipboard clipboard;
	clipboard.insert("text/plain", text);
	bb::system::SystemToast *toast = new SystemToast(this);
	toast->setBody("Value copied to clipboard.");

 now call this function in onTriggered like this


 and u are done...Smiley Happy
