delphi – RAD Studio 2009 Persistent Selection Issue: Bug or Feature? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/12/15

Bug, also in Delphi 2007:

Just hit Insert twice (which changes the text entry mode between Insert and Overwrite and then back) and your text selection will be back to working normally.

.NET/C#: PasteText command line tool as reverse of Clip.exe

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/12/15

Quite a while ago I learned about the clip.exe tool.

clip.exe is a nifty tool that allows you to copy console text output to the clipboard. Though shipping with Windows Server 2003, it wasn’t part of Windows XP, but as of Windows Vista it shipped on desktop versions of Windows.

Digging a bit deeper, I found out it was already part of the Windows NT 4 Resource Kit.

So I wrote PasteText:

PasteText: the reverse of clip.exe; pastes Clipboard.GetText() or Clipboard.GetFileDropList() to the standard output.

The full source code is below and in my repository.

There are many examples on the internet about Clipboard.GetText, but there is very little about Clipboard.GetFileDropList. Read the rest of this entry »
