Copy Text to Android Clipboard Programmatically ClipboardManager


If you want to Copy a Text to Clipboard on a Android device Programatically, you will have to use android.text.ClipboardManager for Older Device (API level below 11), but if you want to support API level's 11 and above you need to use android.content.ClipboardManager.

As android.text.ClipboardManager is being deprecation since API level 11 , the warning needs to be suppressed.

Below is the code to handle Clipboard Copy for all android Devices.

//Get the Operation System SDK version as an int
 int sdkVer = android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT;
             
   //For Older Android SDK versions
  if(sdkVer < android.os.Build.VERSION_CODES.HONEYCOMB) {
   @SuppressWarnings("deprecation")
  android.text.ClipboardManager clipboard = (android.text.ClipboardManager) getSystemService(Context.CLIPBOARD_SERVICE);
   clipboard.setText("Text Copied to Clipboard");
} 
                
//For Newer Versions
else {
  android.content.ClipboardManager clipboard = (android.content.ClipboardManager) getSystemService(Context.CLIPBOARD_SERVICE); 
  android.content.ClipData clip = android.content.ClipData.newPlainText("Message","Text copied to Clipboard");
  clipboard.setPrimaryClip(clip);
}
