This script uses the JavaScript method document.execCommand() to copy the selected text to clipboard using JavaScript only (ie: no Flash).  The result works in IE9+, Firefox 41+, Chrome 42+, and Opera 29+. Drag over any selected text to have the selection automatically copied to the clipboard (with a tooltip to indicate success). A callback function lets you define additional code to run after each successful operation. Bye bye Flash!

<script src="copytextclipboard.js"></script>


console.log('TEXT COPIED: ' + thetext)
// specify additional code to run whenever text contents copied to clipboard
