Copy gold to clipboard

I wonder if there is something that could do this. I have one addon that actually has an export frame and shows me text from the gold in that raid, that I can than highlight and copy. I wonder if I can get something similar.
If not a direct copy of my gold value, a frame were I can automatically highlight the gold I have and copy to clipboard.

Many thanks.

You can't "programatically" send text to the clipboard. You need the frame to display the text that you then select and CTRL-C to get it onto the clipboard.

You can create a frame with an EditBox and automaticaly set it to select some text (EditBox:HighlightText(start, end)) so you just need to CTRL-C to copy to the clipboard.

Edit: I missed the bit where you were asking for a popup frame if that was the only way.

You can paste the following into the website addon.bool.no and give it a unique title (GetGold?) to create/download a small addon to do this. /gg will show/hide the frame with your current gold/silver/copper (the button will toggle current character/all characters) ready to copy (CTRL-C).Pasting the text into an editor will paste the numbers but not the icons.
Notes
Using a text editor (eg. NotPad):
The following line will need to be added (after the other lines starting with ##) to the addons .TOC file located in the addons folder (THE ADDON WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY WITHOUT THIS):
## SavedVariables: GG_DATA

Will only show total gold for characters you have logged on to.
Will show gold for deleted character unless you edit the addons SavedVariables file and delete the characters information:
File Location:

Ty, this is perfect and exactly what I was looking for.

Small addtion if possible please, this is showing the gold of only the current char.

Would it be possible to show the gold of all the chars in my account added up?

You can't get this information for other characters, just the one currently logged on.

It requires a bunch of code to save data as each character logs on/off or has their bank balance updated. It would be something I would think an alt. oriented addon might provide.

Is it possible for me to access an other addons data?

Elvui saves and shows the gold for all my chars I wonder if it would be possible to fetch that data.

This is how they show:


Is it possible to fetch their data to the frame? (I didn't link their gold.lua cause I didn't know if it would be breaking any coders rule of not sharing other peoples addons code here)

You could probably get the information from the Elvui SavedVariables but I've never used the addon and have no idea how it's data is structured.

It's global information and using it to display information in your addon wouldn't be a problem.

Not really because way too lazy.

I've updated the code in my OP to add totals for characters. In order to get it to work properly you will need to follow the Notes after copy/pasting/downloading/installing the new version of the addon.

A copy of the notes is also at the end of the code.

Ty! this works perfectly.
It is exactly what I needed and wanted.
Love the nice button touch of changing between all and single char.
