Copy text from another element
A pretty common use case is to copy content from another element. You can do that by adding a
data-clipboard-target attribute in your trigger element.
The value you include on this attribute needs to match another's element selector.
Cut text from another element
Additionally, you can define a
data-clipboard-action attribute to specify if you want to either
If you omit this attribute,
copy will be used by default.
As you may expect, the
cut action only works on
Copy text from attribute
Truth is, you don't even need another element to copy its content from. You can just include a
data-clipboard-text attribute in your trigger element.
There are cases where you'd like to show some user feedback or capture what has been selected after a copy/cut operation.
That's why we fire custom events such as
error for you to listen and implement your custom logic.
ngclipboard provides you two attributes called
ngclipboard-error to listen the clipboard events and implement your custom logic.
