Clipboard

Clipboard management plugin for Cordova/PhoneGap that supports iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 8.

Usage

Install the plugin using the CLI, for instance with PhoneGap:

phonegap local plugin add https://github.com/VersoSolutions/CordovaClipboard

The plugin creates the object cordova.plugins.clipboard with the methods copy(text, onSuccess, onError) and paste(onSuccess, onError).

Example:

var text = "Hello World!";

cordova.plugins.clipboard.copy(text);

cordova.plugins.clipboard.paste(function (text) { alert(text); });

Notes

All platforms

  • The plugin only works with text content.

Windows Phone

  • The Windows Phone platform doesn't allow applications to read the content of the clipboard. Using the paste method will return an error.

Android

  • The minimum supported API Level is 11. Make sure that minSdkVersion is larger or equal to 11 in AndroidManifest.xml.

Acknowledgements

This plugin was inspired by ClipboardManagerPlugin (Android) and ClipboardPlugin (iOS).
