1- Android Clipboard

In  Android, Clipboard is a useful framework for copying and pasting different types of data, for example, text, image, binary stream data and other complex data types.
Specifically speaking, if the data is a plain text type, when copied, it will be directly stored in the Clipboard.
Complex data when copied will be stored as a reference. And the pasting application may have to use ContentProvider to parse the content.
In order to use  Android Clipboard Framework, your application needs to place the data in the ClipData object, then put this object into the Clipboard system. All applications following the above rules can copy and paste the data to one another.
A ClipData object is created by one of the following static methods:
* Copy & Paste *
private void doCopy()  {
    this.clipboardManager = (ClipboardManager) this.getSystemService(Context.CLIPBOARD_SERVICE);

    String txtCopy = "Hello World";
    
    // ClipData (Plain Text)
    ClipData clipData = ClipData.newPlainText("Some label", txtCopy);
    
    // Copy ClipData to Clipboard.
    this.clipboardManager.setPrimaryClip(clipData);
}

private void doPaste()  {
    ClipData primaryClipData = this.clipboardManager.getPrimaryClip();

    ClipData.Item item = primaryClipData.getItemAt(0);

    // Text in the Clipboard.
    String txtPaste = item.getText().toString();
}

2- Example of Clipboard (Plain Text)

Copying and pasting "plain text" is the simplest and most common thing in Android apps. Here is one such example:
The interface of the application:

3- Example of Clipboard (Intent)

Intent(s) can be copied to the  Clipboard. In this example I'm going to create a simple Intent to open a URL in the browser. We can copy this Intent to the Clipboard.

4- Example of Clipboard (URI)

To copy an image, you need to convert it into a Uri, and copy this Uri to the Clipboard. In this example I'm going to copy an image in the "drawable" folder to the Clipboard.
Copy a couple of image files to the  "drawable" folder:
icon_cry.png icon_feel_good.png
On Android Studio, we wil create a new Activity called ImageActivity to display the image copied to the Clipboard.
  • File > New > Activity > Empty Activity
Android Studio creates two files,  ImageActivity.java and  activity_image.xml; at the same time,  ImageActivity is registered in  AndroidManifest.xml:
AndroidManifest.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="org.o7planning.clipboarduriexample">

    <application
        android:allowBackup="true"
        android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
        android:supportsRtl="true"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
        <!-- ImageActivity -->
        <activity android:name=".ImageActivity"></activity>
        <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
    </application>

</manifest>
Here is the interface of the  ImageActivity:
