Hi,

If you mean that your application needs to support the clipboard API from JavaScript then I'm afraid normal CEF browsers don't support that feature.

I just did a quick test loading this page with a normal CEF browser and then with the TinyBrowser2 demo which uses the experimental "Chrome Runtime" mode :
https://googlechrome.github.io/samples/async-clipboard/

The normal CEF browser can't use the copy and paste buttons in that page but TinyBrowser2 can! :)

The bad news is that the Chrome Runtime mode is still in experimental state. Some people managed to embed a browser in that mode in the official CEF forum but I haven't tried to embed them in a Delphi form and I'm not sure if it would be stable.
