    Disable Copy and Paste in Phonegap/Cordova but keeping text selection On

    niteensapkal

      Hi,

      I am new to phonegap/cordova.

      I am building a mobile application using phone gap.

      I have a requirement that I want to let user to select text in mobile view but instated showing native clipboard (share/copy/paste) I need to show my menu options to the user.

      I tried with restricting user to select text to disable copy/paste options by setting

      {
      -webkit-user-select: none;
      -khtml-user-select: none;
      -moz-user-select: none;
      -ms-user-select: none;
      user-select: none;
      }

      but after that I am not able to select the text.

      If I set,

      {

      -webkit-user-select: text;

      -khtml-user-select: text;

      -moz-user-select: text;

      -ms-user-select: text;

      user-select: text;

      }

       

      it's allowing me text selection but it shows android's/ios's clipboard manager.

       

      I need to override this functionality and want to hide default clipboard manger and want to show my custom one.

       

      How can I achieve the text selection functionality without showing native copy/paste clipboard?

      Please tell me the solution to achieve this.

      Thanks in advance.

      Niteen
