Pasting something


#1

I’ve used the Get text command to scrape a value.
Now I just want to go and paste that value, but when I use Set text to do that it prompts me for the actual text to write. I don’t want to provide it because it would be on the clipboard - how do I paste what’s on the clipboard?


#2

you need to store the value from Get Text into an output variable. Look at the properties pane for the Get Text activity.
You can then paste that variable.


#3

So if I use “Get visible text” and thus scrape the number, and then create a variable to store it will it know that the scraped number is the one to store in that variable?

How do I specify that it’s the stored variable that I want to paste to the correct cell in OpenOffice spreadsheet?


#4

Yes it would

Input on Set Text activity should be set to the variable that you have saved.
