    Default How enable copy/past in application

    Hi,

    I am searching a way to allow the user to made copy/past in my application with default shortcuts. Their is no way to do this for all input widgets and media document like QWebPage?

    I'll be great if it works with other applications.

    QWebPage is a logical entity without a physical representation. so pasting data into a QWebPage wouldn't make much sense. You could paste it into QWebView though. As far as I know all input widgets that accept textual input are equipped with appropriate copy/paste functionality. Could you describe what exactly would you want to change in their behaviour?

    I have also a QWebView.

    Ok I made a test, I can do a copy with the contextual menu launched with an hit in right mouse button, but the CRTL+C shortcut doesn't work.
    Shortcuts works well with input widgets (also available for forms in the web view).

    Could you be more specific? Ctrl+C doesn't work where?

    Ctrl+C, doesn't work when I do it just after a selection of a text in a webpage display by a QWebView object. This text is a text of a page not coming from a html form.

    Add this to your webview object:

    Qt Code:
    1. QAction *act = webview->pageAction(QWebPage::Copy);
    2. act->setShortcut(QKeySequence::Copy);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    It works fine for me. If it doesn't work for you then you somehow broke the copy/paste functionality which is already present in QWebView. Retrace your steps to see what might have gone wrong.
