Thanks, lainB, for the info there - but SC *already* saves the image file to a directory. Also, I *can* fetch the last file path as text via a commandline to SC.
(presently, I have SC keep the bitmap on the clipboard, and I have a button on my taskbar to send commandline to SC for the filepath; but I have a couple of issues with this that I won't bring up here).
But what I was proposing is a bit different.
I am wanting BOTH the bitmap AND the file path on the SAME clipboard.
Windows Clipboard is capable of handling more than one kind of data format on clipboard simultaneously. For example, when you copy something from MS Word and paste it into MS Word, it is pasted as rich-text; but if you paste it into notepad it is pasted as plain text. MS Word will let you choose to paste as richtext OR plaintext - so you can see the different formats present.
If I could have the bitmap AND the text on the clipboard then I would not have to issue any new commands to have the data when I want it. It would just be there.
