What is the "Copy to Clipboard" button on the License Activation Wizard and Credit Order Form dialog? (KB632)

Question Detail

When running the License Activation Wizard to enable the license for my LonMaker software product, I am confused by the "Copy to Clipboard" function. What is the "Clipboard", and why do I need to use it?
The "Copy to Clipboard" button is also seen on the LonMaker and LNS credits order form.


The clipboard is a Windows software program that is used for short-term storage of data as it is transferred between documents or applications, via copy and paste operations. It is most commonly a part of a GUI environment and is usually implemented as an anonymous, temporary block of memory that can be accessed from most or all programs within the environment.

The standard Windows keybindings are:

  • Ctrl-c to copy data onto the clipboard
  • Ctrl-x to cut data to the clipboard
  • Ctrl-v to paste data from the clipboard

Pressing the "Copy to Clipboard" button causes the credit/license form to be copied to the Windows Clipboard. Paste the form into an email or MS Word document using Ctrl-V
