Copy Field Text to iphone clipboard?

Postby kludger » Sun Sep 27, 2009 9:39 am

First great job on Handbase, it's my most expensive iphone app so far (counting the desktop addon) but full featured and well worth buying.

Is there a builtin way to copy a text field from the View Record page to the iphone clipboard without having to go into Edit record->Edit field->Select->Copy ?

I'm building an account password storage db and would like to be able to view records of websites and be able to copy the contents of a Text "password" or "URL" field from the View Record page without having to Edit Record first...

I can click on the field in the View Record page and it turns blue, but it doesn't seem to do any copy functionality. Let me know if I am missing something obvious in the UI or is there a better way to do a password/URL type of field to copy into clipboard to past into safari? if not then this would seem to be a good feature request for the View Record page.

Also in a related feature request question could you make https:// links also launch safari? http:// already work great but most login URLs are https:// SSL links.

Thanks for a great iphone app and support.

Hi John,

Thanks for the great suggestions and posting. You're absolutely right about the https, that was an oversight on my part. I am adding this to the todo list.

With regards to selecting and copying, I don't believe this can be done in the view record screen as it stands now. I would have to implement some custom clipboard behavior since the fields themselves are not really UI elements that have clipboard built in. So this too is going to the todo list!

Thanks again for your suggestions!
