Copy text/html to clipboard React component
Forked from react-copy-to-clipboard
Based on copy-html-to-clipboard
Would try to use execCommand with fallback to IE specific clipboardData interface and finally, fallback to simple prompt with proper text content & 'Copy to clipboard: Ctrl+C, Enter'

Copy to clipboard



npm install --save react react-copy-html-to-clipboard

children: PropTypes.node.isRequired

CopyToClipboard is a simple wrapping component, it does not render any tags, so it requires the only child element to be present, which will be used to capture clicks.
<CopyToClipboard text="Hello!">
  <button>Copy text to clipboard</button>

<CopyToClipboard text="Hello, <b>I am bold</b>!" options={{asHtml: true}} >
  <button>Copy html to clipboard</button>
