View Full Version : Expanding this function to accomodate multiple items

I have the following bit of code:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

function ClipBoard()
{
holdtext.innerText = copytext.innerText;
Copied = holdtext.createTextRange();
Copied.execCommand("Copy");
}

</SCRIPT>

I use it to copy items to the clipboard. It works great when I only have one piece of information to deal with (one "holdtext", one "copytext").

I want to expand the capabilities of this function in order to accomodate more than one piece of information. Something that will allow me to pass it an integer ("ClipBoard(1);", or "ClipBoard(100334);") instead of it dealing with just one.

thanks!

See if this does what you require.

<script>
function Copy(n){
copyme=n
textRange = document.body.createTextRange();
textRange.moveToElementText(copyme);
textRange.execCommand("Copy");
}
</script>

<a href="#null" onclick="Copy(copyit)">Copy To Clipboard</a>

<P><a href="#null" onclick="Copy(copyit2)">Copy To Clipboard2</a>

<P><div id=copyit>This would be the first text range to be copied</div>

<P><div id=copyit2>This is the second range of text to be copied by the same script
</div>
