Copy/Paste support

I don't think you can currently do this in Corona, but one feature I would like to see is copy/paste support. It should not be that difficult to add in some hooks to access the pasteboard. I have one app idea I'm working on where it would be nice if the user could copy the results of action for pasting into another app on the device.

That's assuming that you have "text" objects on screen. Since Corona is openGL far as I know everything is rendered as a graphic and drawn on each frame - including the text that you see.

[EDIT]: But you should be able to programmatically set the copy/paste buffer with a variable in your code. I see where you are going with that...

Yes, that's specifically what I want to do. I've been working on idea for which Corona would probably be a good fit, would be very graphics oriented, but at certain points a user would find it convenient to copy out some generated values for use in another app or in an email.

+1000 I would love the ability to write data to the clipboard.

This would open up an enormous number of potential apps that create output for sharing/pasting between apps/email, etc.

+1 for this.
