ST6 Copy/Paste - how to do it programmatically ?

I'm writing a program which exchanges the BACKGROUND VIEWS of a drawing with the BACKGROUND VIEWS of another drawing.

Interactively this is a simple delete/copy/paste operation. Trouble is that the PASTE appears

with object glued to the cursor and expects the user to input a Shift/MouseClick in order to

place the incoming object at the position the original had (what I need).

How can I input the Shift/MouseClick PROGRAMMATICALLY ?


Many thanks for any help,

I know this has been discussed many times in the past and I think has been answered. Could you please search the forums using keyword "BACKGROUND" and see if any of those posts helps you. If not, we'll try to help.

Many thanks - I found a solution. Instead of using the modified paste which exists in SE and

is invoked by StartCommand, it uses the Windows Paste - which of course doesn't have any


It still stands that the SE Team should adjust the StartCommand such that it would accept

an optional parameter for that Shift/MouseClick issue...


Thanks again,
