Can some one give me a sample code of a function, which can be attached to an anchor in order to copy the content of a div with a specific id.

Do you mean copy to clipboard? Then try this code..



<script>
function CopyToClipboard(id){
if (document.all)
{
window.clipboardData.clearData();
window.clipboardData.setData('Text',document.getElementById(id).innerHTML);
} else alert('It works only in IE');
}
</script>

<div id="div1">hello world</div>
<a href="Javascript:CopyToClipboard('div1');">Copy</a>

Yes, thanks for the sample, but is it possible to have a function which will work for both IE and Firefox?:cool:
