Use a button to paste from clipboard

Specifically in the mobile app builder, is there a way to configure a button to paste from the user's mobile clipboard into a text field? I see a built-in trigger for copy, but not paste. Thanks!

Not quite yet! Can you share what you're trying to do? Is this pasteboard contents coming from another app? Is it human-readable cleartext or something else?

Paste from another app, just a hash of encoded data, but will be visible in the retool app for verification purposes.

Got it. Yeah right now the only thing you can do is ask the user to paste their pasteboard into a text input and run code in the change handler for that input.

Yeh that's what I ended up doing :+1:, thanks
