copyToClipboard( )

Copies text to the site visitor's clipboard.

The copyToClipboard() function copies the specified text to the site visitor's clipboard.

If the site visitor's browser does not support copying text to the clipboard programmatically, a modal popup that allows copying will be displayed. For example, when calling copyToClipboard from a Firefox or Edge browser the site visitor will see something similar to the popup shown below.

Copy To Clipboard Popup

The Promise returned by copyToClipboard() resolves when the specified text is copied to clipboard or the modal popup is closed. The Promise is rejected if a null value is passed as the toCopy parameter or if the visitor's browser blocks the modal popup from opening.
