    Adding Text to the Copy Event not working in IE

    Angelo.Volta Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I added an addTextToCopy() function to my topics in RoboHelp 2015 and the FlashHelp output works in every browser except for Internet Explorer. I tested the function on a test site and it works fine ... it is only in the FlashHelp output that the function does not work in IE. Would appreciate any ideas!

      Thanks,

      AV

       

      PS : Just in case, this is the script :

       

      <script language="javascript">

      function addTextToCopy() {

               var selection = window.getSelection(),

                   

                  pagelink = '<br><br> My copyright text',

                   copytext = selection + pagelink,

                   newdiv = document.createElement('div');

       

               newdiv.style.position = 'absolute';

               newdiv.style.left = '-99999px';

       

               document.body.appendChild(newdiv);

               newdiv.innerHTML = copytext;

               selection.selectAllChildren(newdiv);

       

               window.setTimeout(function () {

                   document.body.removeChild(newdiv);

               }, 100);

           }

       

           document.addEventListener('copy', addTextToCopy);

      < /script>
