Copy image to clipboard

Post by admazy » Wed Nov 09, 2022 10:40 pm

Hello

FF 55.0.3 (64-bit)
iMacros 8.9.7

The main goal is to paste the image to a Facebook post, I found a way how to paste it from the clipboard, but the problem is that I need to save it somehow before to this clipboard.

Trying to open the image in a new tab and simply copy it with ctrl+c but it doesn't work.

EVENTS TYPE=KEYPRESS SELECTOR="HTML>BODY>IMG" CHARS="c" MODIFIERS="ctrl"

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Yeah, but the Syntax is not correct, for only 1 Char, you need to use:

Code: Select all

EVENT TYPE=KEYPRESS SELECTOR="HTML>BODY>IMG" CHAR="c" MODIFIERS="ctrl"
... And you can otherwise try:

Code: Select all

EVENTS TYPE=KEYPRESS SELECTOR="HTML>BODY>IMG" CHARS="ac" MODIFIERS="ctrl"
... And also:

Code: Select all

EVENTS TYPE=KEYPRESS SELECTOR="HTML>BODY" CHARS="ac" MODIFIERS="ctrl"
... Or even:

Code: Select all

EVENTS TYPE=KEYPRESS SELECTOR=* CHARS="ac" MODIFIERS="ctrl"

- I don't even read the Qt if that (required) Info is not mentioned...!
- Script & URL help a lot for more "educated" Help...

I did try different syntax combinations but anyway it's not working, for me it looks impossible.

I found a simple standard way to insert image into FB post. It was so easy :lol:

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:What's<SP>on<SP>your<SP>mind?… EXTRACT=TXT
SET !EXTRACT NULL
TAG POS=R1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Photo/video
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Add<SP>photos<SP>from<SP>your<SP>mobile<SP>device.
TAG POS=R-1 TYPE=INPUT:FILE FORM=NAME:NoFormName ATTR=* CONTENT=D:\image.jpg
Thanks.

Yep-yep, I think it's possible, using the Clipboard, or maybe the `EXTRACT` Mechanism...

But you didn't post any "concrete" Script or any URL, so I couldn't/didn't do any Testing, and I understood from your (a bit vague) Scenario Description, that the Image you wanted to copy was a "Web-Image", not a "Local" Image, but my next Sugg, (if nothing really worked, and I couldn't do any Testing myself), would indeed have been to first save the (Web)-image locally using `SAVEITEM`, to then re-upload it to that Site, using the Syntax you found yourself... :P

It was a local image previously saved from the web, opened in a new tab in FF. My ideas with `EXTRACT` doesn't work, same as copying it with the 'Context menu' and character 'y' in FF.
