Description

This pastes the clipboard contents to the person with that chat ID.

The clipboard must contain text - if it does the entire contents will be pasted to that person (as a personal chat message, so it will work with other clients), and echoed on your output window as well.

You could use that to exchange aliases, triggers, messages from the screen, and so on.

Each call is identified by its "chat ID" - each chat session has a unique ID, which starts at one, and is incremented by one, per world.

You can use GetChatList to find a list of chat IDs that is current.

You can use ChatGetID to find the chat ID corresponding to a particular chat name.


Note: Available in version 3.37 onwards.


VBscript example
ChatPasteText 5  ' paste to user 5
ChatPasteText ChatGetID ("nick")  ' paste to Nick
Jscript example
ChatPasteText (5);   // paste to user 5
ChatPasteText (ChatGetID ("nick"));  // paste to Nick
PerlScript example
ChatPasteText (5);   # paste to user 5
ChatPasteText (ChatGetID ("nick"));  # paste to Nick
Python example
world.ChatPasteText (5)   # paste to user 5
world.ChatPasteText (world.ChatGetID ("nick"))  # paste to Nick
Lua example
ChatPasteText (5)   -- paste to user 5
ChatPasteText (ChatGetID ("nick"))  -- paste to Nick
Returns eChatIDNotFound: No call with that chat ID
