7. Clipboard Support

Chapter 7. Clipboard Support

Because support for the clipboard is essential in any desktop application, AIR allows for access to the operating system clipboard in several data formats. AIR also provides support for many operations beyond the standard copying, cutting, and pasting of text within an application. The standard data formats within AIR let you work with many types of text data, bitmap data, and even file references. Another great feature of the clipboard support within AIR is that you can extend it and create your own custom clipboard data format to fit your AIR application.
