I am working with an application in Windows. I have a window which I need to copy text out of. I can highlight the text in blue and even have the Copy selction available when I right click. When I open up notepad to paste the info in, nothing is pasted. this may be too general, let me know what other information I can provide.
The program is an an OPC client (OLE Process Automation) an applications used for automation industry. When highlight the test I want and right click I see a menu with different option which are related to the program, as well as the standard cut,paste, copy etc.
I can cut and then paste but only within the window. It seems like when I copy or cut it is not going to the Windows Clipboard. If I cut and then go to notepad or wordpad I cannot paste. It seems that the copy is not going to the Windows Clipboard and there may be no way to interact with the function they had setup for the copy, there is no API. Is there any other way someone may know of to work aorund this, or to copy the text out of the window.
