Hi

Has anyone made this before, or can someone give some hints where to look ?

I want to be able to copy selected rows in a table to Excel.

Thanks - Henrik

Excel understands Text format, RTF format and HTML format (in addition to
some other formats not supported by SWT).

For example:
Using TextTransfer "1\t2\t3\n4\t5\t6" will be pasted into Excel as two rows
of three cells each

Using HTMLTransfer
<html>
<body>
<table>
<tr><td>1</td><td>2</td><td>3</td></tr>
<tr><td>4</td><td>5</td><td>6</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Actually the HTMLTransfer seems to need a bit of header info, something like
this:

Version:1.0
StartHTML:0000000000
EndHTML:0000000000
StartFragment:0000000000
EndFragment:0000000000
<html><body>
<table>
<tr><td>A</td><td>B</td><td>C</td></tr>
<tr><td>D</td><td>E</td><td>F</td></tr>
</table>
</body></html>

Thanks, but how do I enable the Ctrl+C key combination on a table so I can
do a clipboard.setContents() on the selected rows in the table?

I could make a menu option called Copy and use the setAccelerator - but I
also have other widgets with "build in" copy/paste functionality (Text
widget for example). Wouldn't the setAccelerator interfere with that?

You need to create a menu and set the accelerator. Text has built in
support because it is clear what kind of data to set on the Clipboard
(Text). Table is not that simple.
