Copy Paste in UiPath

0 votes
I'm trying to copy(ctrl+c send hotkey) data from website and assigning the clipboard value to a variable(Using Getfromclipboard in Uipath). Ctrl+v in normal notepad works fine but when I try to extract the data using GetfromClipboard, the data is coming in xml format. Not sure what is the exact issue. Could you please check and advise?

Thanks,

Hello Obli,

To Retrieves data from the clipboard you can use the following:

UiPath.Core.Activities.GetFromClipboard

OR

Use the Get From Clipboard activity:

Note:Use a simple string variable as the data retrieved by the Get Clipboard text will only have String values.
You can then apply string manipulation functions such as ‘Split’ to get an array of strings out of the text retrieved.

Hope this is helpful!!

Thank You!!
