Add a file to the system clipboard


The JUCE system clipboard only allows you to add a text string, presumably it’s not a massive extension of this to allow files to be put in the clipboard, or is it? Anyone know?



Still looking for Mac solution



    NSURL *object = [[NSURL alloc] initFileURLWithPath:@"/Users/username/Desktop/main.png"];
    NSPasteboard *pb = [NSPasteboard generalPasteboard];
    [pb clearContents];

    NSArray *objectsToCopy = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:object, nil];
    BOOL pasted = [pb writeObjects:objectsToCopy];

    if(pasted) // paste was successful

    [object release];
    [objectsToCopy release];
    [pb release];


Nice… I just found that link to the reference:

Would be cool to make that available to the SystemClipBoard…


I guess it’ll need solving for iOS, Android and Linux to be an official feature?
