help with click-to-copy-into-clipboard function and open new frame/page
Im currently building a new discount-webpage and Im looking for a solution to be able to hover over a discount button to reveal a small text without clicking. And after clicking on the button that the text in the flash button is copied into the clipboard and a new page open with a small frame from my window with the new page underneith. examples of this kind of script can be viewed on this page: http://www.retailmenot.com/ on the yellow boxes with the discount text.
Im not looking for someone to do this for me. All I want to know if there is another language to do this with like possibly java? and maybe some links to tutorials. (the current page solves this with flash which I havent worked with before.)
Best of luck. It is a work in progress so grab one copy soon and work your own magic.
Thanks for the help! Ive been reading a bit on java and there seems to be alot of trouble with copy-paste into clipboard that flash doesnt have, at least not yet. I think ill search a bit on how to do this in flash as it seems to be the best alternative

If you are serious about needing the data outside of the browser - I can post the principle code that I used to collect Eurosport TV schedules off their website and filter for chosen sports. I still have it somewhere though I use a different method due to them changing their site.
Otherwise Frames and DIV layers are the best way to go. Or get heavily into server-side programming.
Flash has a few limitations. It all depends on your target audience and you cannot guess what they are doing from your own small sample of one, (and a few friends). It is anarchy out there.
