Putting an image on the clipboard is straightforward:
cx% = 0 cy% = 0 hbitmap% = FNloadimage(pic$, cx%, cy%, 0) SYS "OpenClipboard", @hwnd% SYS "EmptyClipboard" SYS "SetClipboardData", CF_BITMAP, hbitmap% SYS "CloseClipboard"
Here pic$ is the full path and filename to the image file (which can be a BMP, EMF, GIF, ICO, JPEG or WMF). If you want to support a wider range of formats (including PNG and TIFF) then call FNloadimagegdip or FNloadimagegdip2 rather than FNloadimage.
