Adding a JavaScript 'Copy to Clipboard'

 
 
Reply Mon 1 Mar, 2004 12:06 am
I am trying to add a button that will "Copy contents to clipboard".

Unfortunately I am not getting the result I want. Any ideas what I should modify/add?

Here is what I am currently working with:
Whoops. Forgot we can't post links, anyways, here is the code (sorry it is rather long) heh:
Code:var DQUOTE = '"';
var APOSTROPHE= "'";
var ATSIGN = "@";
var ANGLEO = "<";
var ANGLEC = ">";
var PLUS = "+";

var strEncrypt;
var txtEncrypt;
var typEncrypt;
var begEncrypt;
var lenEncrypt;
var javEncrypted;
var numArray;
var outLines;


function makeDisplayable(str)
{
i = str.indexOf(DQUOTE);
while (i >= 0)
{
str = str.substr(0,i) + """ + str.substr(i+1);
i = str.indexOf(DQUOTE);
}

i = str.indexOf(APOSTROPHE);
while (i >= 0)
{
str = str.substr(0,i) + "'" + str.substr(i+1);
i = str.indexOf(APOSTROPHE);
}

i = str.indexOf(ANGLEO);
while (i >= 0)
{
str = str.substr(0,i) + "<" + str.substr(i+1);
i = str.indexOf(ANGLEO);
}

i = str.indexOf(ANGLEC);
while (i >= 0)
{
str = str.substr(0,i) + ">" + str.substr(i+1);
i = str.indexOf(ANGLEC);
}

return str;
}

And to display it:
Code:<html>
<head>
<script src="email.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

<body>
Please follow the following instructions for this method:
<br>
<script>
<!--
ProcessEncryption();
// -->
</script>
<p>Copy the generated info below and place it in the source code to display the text entered in the first box. Each encrypted piece placed on the same webpage should have a different array encryption name as shown by the var byX = new Array line where X is a numerical value. The numbered box above shows the next array to be created. The value may be modified if needed.</p>
</body>
</html>


Haven't been here for awhile. Sure hope Craven is still around Very Happy

I have a much shorter script for this. It will copy a form textarea to the clipboard.

Script. Place before the textarea.

Code:<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
<!--
function highlightmetasearch() {
document.post.message.select(); document.FORMNAME.TEXTAREANAME.focus();
}
function copymetasearch() {
highlightmetasearch();
textRange = document.post.message.createTextRange();
textRange.execCommand("RemoveFormat");
textRange.execCommand("Copy");
alert("This post has been copied to your clipboard.\nIf this post is lost when you submit it you can easily repost it.\nAlways use this feature before posting! - \nwww.able2know.com");
}
// -->
</SCRIPT>


Text area that will be copied.

Code:<textarea name="TEXTAREANAME" rows="15" cols="35">Example text</textarea>



Button code.

Displays a button to copy the text for the supported browsers and for others that support highlighting the text it displays a button to highlight the text.

Code: <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
if ((navigator.appName=="Microsoft Internet Explorer")&&(parseInt(navigator.appVersion)>=4)) {
document.write('<INPUT type="button" class="button" value="COPY TO CLIPBOARD" onClick="copymetasearch();">');
} else {
document.write('<INPUT type="button" class="button" value="HIGHLIGHT TEXT" onClick="highlightmetasearch();">');
}
// -->
</script>

Thanks for the help. I am trying to incorporate that into the script I am already using, so it is making it somewhat complicated.

Code: numArray++;
document.write ("<table border='0' cellpadding='3' width='80%' align='center'>");
document.write (" <form action='email_encryption.php' method='get' name='emailencrypt'>");
document.write (" <tr><td valign='bottom'>");
document.write (" <input type='submit' class='input' name='submit' value='Submit' />");
if ((navigator.appName=="Microsoft Internet Explorer")&&(parseInt(navigator.appVersion)>=4)) {
document.write('<INPUT type="button" class="input" value="Copy" onClick="copymetasearch();">');
} else {
document.write('<INPUT type="button" class="input" value="Copy" onClick="highlightmetasearch();">');
}
document.write (" </td>");
document.write (" <td>");
document.write (" <i>Enter info to encode</i> <br />");
document.write (" <input type='text' class='input' name='encode' size='55' value='");
document.write (valueDisplay);
document.write ("' />  ");
document.write (" <input type='text' class='input' name='numarray' size='3' value='");
document.write (numArray);
document.write ("' />");
document.write (" </td>");
document.write (" </tr>");
document.write (" </form>");
document.write (" <tr><td></td>");
document.write (" <td valign='bottom'>");
document.write (" <form name='encryptedemail'>");
document.write (" <textarea class='input' name='encrypted' rows='" + outLines + "' cols='64'>");
document.write (javEncrypted);
document.write ("</textarea>");
document.write (" </form>");
document.write (" </td>");
document.write (" </tr>");
document.write ("</table>");


It is at mrbobdouglas-com/testing/email_encryption.php if that helps... Confused

Well.. Basically I am trying to do something like that. But I already have a lot of the code completed- and would prefer to continue to use this method, but just add your nice copy code function.

Just not quite sure where or how to add it.
Maybe it would help if you saw the code I am using inside the preview mode. Any ideas?

The code I posted above is quite simple. It copies a textarea. So as long as your code is using a textarea it doesn't need any script integration.

Just pop the script above the textarea (making sure to change the formname and textarea name in the script).

Then put the button below the textarea. That's it.

This is the function that I am trying to put the script(copy to clipboard one you showed) into. Here it is after I tried to add it..

Code:function ProcessEncryption()
{
qs = location.search.substring(1);

i = qs.indexOf("numarray=");
if (i >= 0)
{
numArray = parseInt(qs.substring(i+9));
}
else
{
numArray = 0;
}

i = qs.indexOf("encode=");
value = qs.substring(i+7);

i = value.indexOf("&");
if (i >= 0)
{
value = value.substring(0, i);
}

value = unescape(value);
i = value.indexOf(PLUS);
while (i >= 0)
{
value = value.substr(0,i) + " " + value.substr(i+1);
i = value.indexOf(PLUS);
}
valueDisplay = makeDisplayable(value);
i = value.indexOf(APOSTROPHE);
while (i >= 0)
{
value = value.substr(0,i) + "\\'" + value.substr(i+1);
i = value.indexOf(APOSTROPHE,i+2);
}
Encrypt(value);
numArray++;
document.write ("<table border='0' cellpadding='3' width='80%' align='center'>");
document.write (" <form action='email_encryption.php' method='get' name='emailencrypt'>");

I've given you code above (feel free to take it from the URLs) that works much better so I'll not be working through the bloated code. <shrugs>

I would rather not just take it, for I am trying to get better at JavaScript. So far I have gone through a few tutorials on it in some books, learning a few different things here and there.

Thanks for the help. Hopefully someone else will be able to come along and help me try to add it into my code. Thanks again Smile

Well here's one hint. Dynamically writing javascript onto the page with javascript won't work in most cases.

Hardcode the code I gave you above and below twhere that script will be written and it should work.

Uhh forgive my ignorance, but what is this encryption useful for?
I mean, if it is client-side script protection, how to use it? Do I paste the javascript I want to protect into the box, click encrypt, and then use the generated code as a _client script_ ?

Or how?

Glad you got it figured out.
If someone else can come help too, this is what I am trying to do...

I am trying to figure out how to include this:
Code:<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
if ((navigator.appName=="Microsoft Internet Explorer")&&(parseInt(navigator.appVersion)>=4)) {
document.write('<INPUT type="button" class="button" value="COPY TO CLIPBOARD" onClick="copymetasearch();">');
} else {
document.write('<INPUT type="button" class="button" value="HIGHLIGHT TEXT" onClick="highlightmetasearch();">');
}
// -->
</script>


Inside of this function:

Code: Encrypt(value);
numArray++;
document.write ("<table border='0' cellpadding='3' width='80%' align='center'>");
document.write (" <form action='email_encryption.php' method='get' name='emailencrypt'>");
document.write (" <tr><td valign='bottom'>");
document.write (" <input type='submit' class='input' name='submit' value='Submit' />");
document.write (" </td>");
document.write (" <td>");
document.write (" <i>Enter info to encode</i> <br />");
document.write (" <input type='text' class='input' name='encode' size='55' value='");
document.write (valueDisplay);
document.write ("' />  ");
document.write (" <input type='text' class='input' name='numarray' size='3' value='");
document.write (numArray);
document.write ("' />");
document.write (" </td>");
document.write (" </tr>");
document.write (" </form>");
document.write (" <tr><td></td>");
document.write (" <td valign='bottom'>");
document.write (" <form name='encryptedemail'>");
document.write (" <textarea class='input' name='encrypted' rows='" + outLines + "' cols='64'>");
document.write (javEncrypted);
document.write ("</textarea>");
document.write (" </form>");
document.write (" </td>");
document.write (" </tr>");
document.write ("</table>");

Don't put it in the same function. Put it in it's own function.

It needs to be called separately.

Well basically, I put the copy code inside an external js file.
Code:document.write (" <script src='copy.js'><\/script>");


It gives me an error now though saying:
Quote:
'document.post.message' is null or not an object


Is there an easier way to include a js file?

Is your form named post?

Is the texarea named message?

Nope. And that's why it's null. Change those values to the name of your form and the name of your textarea.

Textarea name is encrypted

I get a different error message this time though. Complaining about
1st one:

Line: 31
Char: 3

Bobby,

Why are you having the script write out the tables, form etc? What is the purpose of that?
