Copy to clipboard doesn't work
« on: January 26, 2008, 04:16:35 pm »
When I click Copy contents/selection to clipboard (from the Build Messages 'window'), it just doesn't copy it to the clipboard...

WinXP, latest nightly build.

I noticed the same thing recently, if I wait till it is done building it works for me most of the time.
But, while building it never works for me.

Note, I have cut/paste issues with other apps so was thinking it was Windows XP related.

You want to use the control's standard context menu, which works fine. :)

Not sure what you mean, but it should copy the error into the clipboard shouldn't it? Well...it doesn't :P. Need to rewrite the error if I want to post it on a forum for instance.

What Thomas meant is this one:

You get this menu simply when right-clicking on *any* logger.
Compiler logging: Settings->Compiler & Debugger->tab "Other"->Compiler logging="Full command line"

Not with my build svn4845 on 64-bit debian.
svn 4844 on w2k works.

I can confirm this too. On my OpenSuse 10.2 (64bit) I don't get this right click menu either. However ctrl-c works for me for a selection made by dragging with the mouse.

I have a wild guess when this was introduced ... ;-)  No no don't ask me .

You get this menu simply when right-clicking on *any* logger.
Only the loggers that are based on a text control (i.e. app log and compiler log, but not the "beautified" build log which is displayed in a table).

These are standard menus which work as good (or bad) as the standard control works for every native text control (on my system, they work flawlessly), we're not doing anything to show them.

The menus that you get when clicking on the tabs are self-made and don't work properly (plus, they have non-standard functions/names).
