    I don't have PBWIN 7 anymore, but I believe it should compile fine in 7 or 8...

    Which PB compiler(s) is Mr. Drake's Clipboard Listener code written for?

    Mr. Drake's 'listener' utility is really nicely thought-out and quite handy for copying source code from forum posts.

    Strong "buy" recommendation here.

    Solution for Opera users:

    1. Left click on source code box
    2. Hold SHIFT and press LEFT key
    code will be selected and ready for copy/paste

    Muchas Gracias José

    Thanks very much, José.
    This is of course the ultimate "trick", simply because it is default Windows behaviour. Completely forgot that, stupid me!

    Here is a shot at a clipboard listener: http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pb...d.php?p=271203

    While running, press Ctrl+A, and Ctrl+C, and the program takes care of the rest for you.

    With FireFox you can use the same technique used with many text editors.

    1.- Left click in the first character to copy.
    2.- Shift + Left click in the last character to copy.

    After (1), you can go quickly to the end of the text with Ctrl + End and then press Shift + Left click.

    True.

    Robert's approach must be an Internet Exploder trick. In Firefox it doesn't work with their latest update release. However, I've found clicking on the Post's Quote-Button generates a window that easily responds to Ctrl-A for all, and then Ctrl-C for copy. Not much different than how the old Edit-button option worked.

    With the post in the buffer, Ctrl-V pushes it easily into JellyFish where text external to the CODE tags is easily removed or commented out.

    There are also some plug-in components for FireFox to make it act like Internet Exploder that will probably make Robert's suggestion work, but browser Plug-ins aren't something I enjoy so I've avoided most of them.

    While depressing the <Ctrl> key, left click in the left/right margin outside the "code" box. The code will appear selected and you can copy/paste it.

    How to download source code?

    Maybe I missed something, but what is the easiest way to download source code from a message? In the old forums one could switch to edit mode in order to easily copy and paste the contents to PBEdit (or whatever text editor). But in the new forums there is no edit mode available, except for your own messages.
Working...
