I have a challenging little req't. We're using tooltips all over the place on our app. I need to be able to setup the tooltips so that we can have a "copy" button or text in the tooltip that our user can click to copy the contents of the tooltip to the system clipboard. This needs to be usable on everything from a large ADG with thousands of tooltips to the simple stuff. I thought I had seen a solution for this at one point in time but cannot for the life of me find it again.
You can do this in an AIR application, but not Flex.
See the Clipboard class in the help docs.
