how to Clear the clipboard ??
Submitted by DoctorSea on Monday, 14 May, 2012 - 11:36
I am trying to write a macro that clears the clipboard. This is most important to me.
I tried

a = "";
textArea.setSelection(a);
Registers.copy(textArea,'$');

and a variety of other textArea methods(viewable online) but nothing I can find helps. What am I missing ?
How does one clear the clipboard ? Any ideas anyone? Please?

Apologies to all. I found it. For all the classes and methods
start at http://www.jedit.org/api/overview-summary.html then navigate
to http://www.jedit.org/api/org/gjt/sp/jedit/Registers.html
to find

a = ""; Registers.setRegister('$',a);

naturally a can be any string;
