Ok, nothing really new  embarassed

I found some issues in another clipboard monitors and I coded mine. Really simple and lightweight.

File size is less than 80kb on disk, a single exe... low memory consumption too  smiley



Download rar file [32kb]
Thanks for reading.

NOTES:

* this app will capture the clipboard text each time that you copy some text to the windows clipboard and write it down in the application as you can see at the screenshot
* just to clear, the first button enable/disable the clipboard monitoring, second copies all the text to clipboard, and third delete the captured text.
* this software does not write anything to disk, your clips will not be saved.
* you can copy some selected text inside the app and it will not be duplicated again. Example: select 1982 and press Ctrl+C. Paste it elsewhere.
* with another clipboards tools, you can get duplicates while copying from certain controls (for example editplus monitor clipboard has this issue).
* this clipboard tool is lightweight, I tryed to use the windows api and no .net or extra dlls are required. Its using 500kb of memory while running on my windows xp, maybe windows 7 or 8 gives some extra space
* I verified this app in virus total. The executable file is not packed, feel free to ask me if you get some false positive. Maybe you will be alerted by some heuristics antivirus because this soft will be monitoring your clipboard

Feel free to send me bugs... I only tested this one by myself  undecided

* add: the app will remember the last position and size
* add: the app will start minimized if you close it from the taskbar or you shut down your computer while the app is minimized

19/03/2013
* add: pinned version allow to have clipboard monitor on top

This is something that I will find very useful.
Just one small request, would it be possible to change the default opening location?
My preference would be in a central position just above the taskbar, second choice would be bottom left, but anywhere at the edge of the screen would be good.
Thanks flamerz.

Much appreciated, the only other thought was if there is a way to start it minimised?

this is the current version that i'm using now.

i translated it to spanish... (sorry, i can set it back to english if any interested).

now has extra features.

F2 - set date time
F12 - hide toolbar

right click on the toobar area, show extra functions like:

insert from top/bottom
adjust text
order text
remove blank lines
remove dupes
some caps functions
open/save clips to disk

regards!

Hi flamerz,

+1 for an English version...I use rpclip from time to time, and would find an English version to be best for my use.

(No hablo espaƱol bien y comprendo solo un poco.)

Thanks!

Just downloaded the latest...it's all clear to me now!  Wink

The shortcuts aren't exactly intuitive, but I can probably handle the four of them--anyone else have suggestions for English version shortcuts?

One other thing I noticed, the white on white color scheme makes it a bit difficult to see if the option is toggled.

Thanks for the translated version!

Hi flamerz, good work!


If I would use this tool I would miss two options from the menu:

* Add Header
* Add Footer



As header I would imagine the title of the window I had captured from, additional a timestamp.
like: "2013-11-25 10:10:29 - N.A.N.Y. 2014 Submission: clipboard monitor "rpclip" - DonationCoder.com - Mozilla Firefox"

As footer I could need a separator line like "\r\n\r\n /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ \r\n\r\n"


Just my ideas   Thmbsup
