    Howdy All,

    Curious if anyone can suggest a method, using jQuery perhaps, to click a div and have the related code copied to the pasteboard. Or something similar.

    Thank You

    I used ZeroClipboard (flash) because it’s the only way to avoid a Javascript popup alert.

    This is what bit.ly uses along with majority of other sites.

    chris is correct. due to security issues javascript doesnt have direct access to the OS clipboard.

    in the past i’ve used this plugin: https://sites.google.com/site/yangshuai10/jquerycopyplugin

    note that it also requires flash, but is really easy to implement.

    Not with flash. It does not work on some Android tablets either.

    There is a way with jQuery/Javascript but the user receives a popup alert (stated above).

    Your best bet is to detect if flash is supported (somehow), if not, remove the flash button. The user can tap (click) on the input and copy it the hard way.
