Linux program seem to use several different clipboard mechanisms. We implemented two ways to save the MapBean image; to the clipboard and to a file. We disable the clipboard copy on Linux.

This code works fine on Windows, but not on Linux (I cannot paste into another app). Any idea? Bart void copyMapToClipboard() { // Get image from mapBean int width = getMapBean().getWidth(); int height = getMapBean().getHeight(); BufferedImage image = new BufferedImage(width, height, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB); GraphicsEnvironment ge = GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment(); Graphics g = ge.createGraphics(image); g.setClip(0, 0, width, height); getMapBean().paintAll(g); ImageSelection imgSel = new ImageSelection(image); Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getSystemClipboard().setContents(imgSel, null); Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().beep(); } // This class is used to hold an image while on the clipboard. public static class ImageSelection implements Transferable { private Image image; public ImageSelection(Image image) { this.image = image; } // Returns supported flavors public DataFlavor[] getTransferDataFlavors() { return new DataFlavor[] { DataFlavor.imageFlavor }; } // Returns true if flavor is supported public boolean isDataFlavorSupported(DataFlavor flavor) { return DataFlavor.imageFlavor.equals(flavor); } // Returns image public Object getTransferData(DataFlavor flavor) throws UnsupportedFlavorException, IOException { if (!DataFlavor.imageFlavor.equals(flavor)) { throw new UnsupportedFlavorException(flavor); } return image; } } -- Prof Dr Bart Jourquin F.U.Ca.M. - G.T.M.
