Hi

I want to write a program that can take the clipboard (a file or an image)
and save it as a blob when I paste it in a widget of some sort.

I saw there was a clipboard example on help.eclipse.org but I do not have
the plugin they refer to, so I can't run it unfortunately.

Have any of you got some hints for me? Which kind of widget fx supports
pasting of an image/file (without showing it - only save to mySql as blob)
etc :)

/Henrik

The is no SWT subclass of Transfer that supports images. You need to define
one. Note that the native format for images depends on the type of image
and varies from platform to platform.
