Can we get text from clipboard without paste it


exactly whats in the title.

Can we know what we have in clipboard without having to paste it somewhere and get text from that element?

Interested too - more specifically for the iOS 7/8 simulators

I’m looking for this feature too. For Android/IOS both.

I’d like to be able to:

  1. in my app (running on simulator) click the share button
  2. click copy in the share targets
  3. access the contents of the simulator clipboard so that I can examine it in my Java code

I can accomplish steps 1 and 2, but I need help with step 3. To get the simulator clipboard contents onto the real system keyboard, one needs to use the sim’s copy function (cmd+C). How do I do that? How do I send keys to the sim itself, as opposed to my app?
