      Hi Johan,

      Checking for change of clipboard data and print new data to textbox
      This is how I implemented the requirement using LB commands, maybe
      there is an API to do this, I don't know.

      Regards, Mike


      WindowWidth = 350 : WindowHeight = 150
      UpperLeftX=(dw-WindowWidth)/2: UpperLeftY=30

      Texteditor #w.pas, 1,1,0,0 ' hidden control for paste from clipboard
      textbox #w.tb1, 10,10,300,20
      statictext #w, "Copy something to the clipboard,",10,40,200,20
      statictext #w, "it will be pasted into the text box

      open "AutoPaste   Today's date:  "+date$() for window_nf as #w
      print  #w, "trapclose [quit]"

         ' window always on top
          toTop = (-1 or 0)      'OR the negative to call it in an API
          flags = _SWP_NOMOVE or _SWP_NOSIZE
          open "user" for dll as #user
          calldll #user, "SetWindowPos", _
              hndlwin as ushort, _
              toTop as short, _
              0 as short, _
              0 as short, _
              0 as short, _
              0 as short, _
              flags as ushort, _
              result as void
          close #user

      while auto=1
      print #w.pas, "!cls";   'clear hidden window
      print #w.pas, "!copy";  'clear clipboard
      'make sel$ equal to contents of #w.pas
      print #w.pas, "!contents? sel$"; 
      while sel$=oldstrg$ and auto=1
      timer 100, [L1]
          print #w.pas, "!paste";      'paste clipboard to hidden window
          print #w.pas, "!contents? sel$";    'set sel$
      wend  'keep checking clipboard at timer interval
            'till contents have changed

      timer 0            'stop timer whilst next command executes
          if sel$<>chr$(13)+chr$(10) then
                     print #w.tb1, sel$
          end if

      close #w
