Copy and paste text to and from system clipboard


txt = clipboard('paste')
data = clipboard('pastespecial')


clipboard('copy',data) copies data to the clipboard. If data is not a character array, it is converted using mat2str.

    Note:   The clipboard function requires Oracle® Java® software.

txt = clipboard('paste') returns the current contents of the clipboard as a character vector. If clipboard cannot convert the contents, txt is empty ('').

data = clipboard('pastespecial') imports the clipboard contents into an array using uiimport.
