Copy Text to the Clipboard using JavaScript

How to Copy Text to the Clipboard using JavaScript?

Here I will show you how to Copy text to the Clipboard using JavaScript.

The JavaScript writeText() method of the navigator.clipboard API is used to Copy text to the clipboard.

The writeText method takes a text as an argument that will be copied. Here is the syntax –

//the text "Hi" will be copied

Since this writeText method is asynchronous, it returns a promise.

navigator.clipboard.writeText(value).then(() => {
    console.log('Text copied to clipboard');
}).catch((err) => {
    console.log('Failed to copy', err);
