I need to read the the clipboard in response to the user action.
I’m trying to write an addon that will mimic the functionality of bbCodeXtra,
I’ve found a Webextension for chrome that has similar functionality, but it does not allow one to apply stuff from the clipboard, which means that I cannot do something like this:
This shouldn’t be a security issue, since the reading of the clipboard data would only occur when the user asks for it, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to read the clipboard contents into a variable to do this. (The selection bit I’ve got down)
