General Discussion on RSyntaxTextArea.

I have a JWS that uses RSyntaxTextArea, but it is unable to use the clipboard unless I sign the app. There is an alternate API that is able to access the clipboard, even without the app signed. Would it be possible to support this? Below is the code showing how to do it. You need the javaws.jar from your JRE/lib directory to compile it (but not at runtime). It would be great if RSyntaxTextArea could fallback to this when the system clipboard fails, and then if the JWS API fails (or is not a JWS app or whatever), it could fallback again to the internal clipboard.

Code: Select all
try {
   ClipboardService clipboard = (ClipboardService)ServiceManager.lookup("javax.jnlp.ClipboardService");

   StringSelection ss = new StringSelection("Java Web Start!");

   Transferable transfer = clipboard.getContents();
   if (transfer.isDataFlavorSupported(DataFlavor.stringFlavor)) {
      try {
         String s = (String)transfer.getTransferData(DataFlavor.stringFlavor);
      } catch (Exception ignored) {
} catch (UnavailableServiceException ignored) {

I remember hearing about this recently. They mucked with copy/paste functionality in applets in 6u24, right? Sigh.
