Hello,

how do I fill some field with the content of the clipboard.

It's ordinary text. Do I have this to do with AppleScript or is it possible with scripts from/for FileMaker?

I scan my Barcode with an external application, the UPC-code was send to the clipboard. If I activate the my databse I want to press a button which fills the content from the clipboard in my field.

I tryed the forumssearch but didn't find any usefull hints.

Maybe someona can help me? :

Hey I got it :

Thanks for your hints. It works in different ways.

I don't know why I overlooked the normal "paste" option in the scriptfunktions :. This works like I want this.

I scan with my iSight. That's the reason why it's not possible to fill in the value directly into the field after the scan.

First I have to start my Barcodescanning programm. This sends the scanned value to the clipboard.

Now everything is working. I am realy glad for you hints. Thank you very much.
