We can copy text from an email message, a graphic from a presentation, and data from a workbook or datasheet. Then paste them all into a document. You can arrange the copied items the way you want in the document using the Clipboard functionality. A common feature of Copy To Clipboard is that users can copy and paste content within their local system and outside the browser. 

The constructor() function holds the state for our component in the (this.state) object. We can add value to our state by using the copySuccess boolean. If the isCopied state is True, then the text will be copied. The setTimeout will be 1000ms. It is automatically false. A this.setState() method is added to our copyCodeToClipboard(). After the value has been copied to the clipboard, it will change copySuccess to true. Finally, the copied text will be displayed. 

  • Variable / State Variable (Depends upon your data type): Used to store the copied data.  
  • A button: We can take copy icon or a div. 
  • An onClick Handler function: The text will be copied when clicking the button. 

Here is an example of how to perform copytoClipboard using Reactjs: 

Preview of the output that you will get on running this code from your IDE.


In this solution we use the React library.


Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install the Node.js and React on your IDE(preferable Visual Studio Code).
  2. Create React Application using npx create-react-app foldername.
  3. cd foldername.
  4. Open the folder in IDE.
  5. Copy the code using "copy" button above and paste it in App.js file(remove the earlier code from App.js).
  6. Import React and React-dom.
  7. Add export default App to the end.
  8. Open the terminal from IDE.
  9. npm start to run the file.

I hope you found this useful. I have added the link to dependent libraries, version information in the following sections.

I found this code snippet by searching for copytoClipboard in reactjs in kandi. You can try any such use case!

Environment Tested

I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

  1. The solution is created in VS Code 1.73.1 version.
  2. The solution is tested on Nodejs 16.14.2 version.
  3. react 18.2.0 version.

Using this solution, we are able to do copytoClipboard in reactjs with simple steps. This process also facilities an easy way to use, hassle-free method to create a hands-on working version of code which would help us to do copytoClipboard in reactjs.
