Variable set string combo box?? to set from clipboard and prompt for new text?


Recommended Posts

Trying to have one dialog at beginning of macro that displays what was on the clipboard but gives user the chance to correct it, if needed. playing with : Variable set string from clipboard vs Variable set string prompt for value.

Is there a way to combine these into one dialog??



get var from clipboard

set to %T1%

display %T1% in dialog in editable field

let user modify %T1%


revise %T1% to new text

Could you do it with two macros and Notepad? That is:


First macro opens Notepad and pastes the clipboard data, then exits.

User modifies data (or leaves it unmodified).

User starts second macro with hotkey combination. Second macro does Ctrl-a and Ctrl-c to highlight/copy contents of Notepad screen, then closes notepad and sets %T1%.
