IE 11 browser copy paste capability with Handsontable

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fa98e7411b8>

As an individual I’m using community license.
I have gone through https://handsontable.com/docs/7.3.0/demo-copy-paste.html#paste-end-user-usage and looking for confirmation on copy and paste functionality.
Question is: Without enabling Clipboard Access in Internet Explorer( Allow Programmatic clipboard access)
Can we achieve copy from MSExcel and paste into Handsontable in UI?
or
Is it mandatory to enable Clipboard Access in Internet Explorer( Allow Programmatic clipboard access) in IE 11 to achieve copy/paste?

If there is/are ways to do, could you share examples using reactjs?

Thanks

I just got a reply from our developer

Without enabling Clipboard Access in Internet Explorer (Allow Programmatic clipboard access) copy/paste functionality doesn’t work. So, this is not only our requirement but in general to use this functionality.

Thankyou @aleksandra_budnik.

Could you reopen this query as I have another query fitting into same scenario.
One of my application was using Handsontable 0.14.1.
Using this version we are able to copy from excel & paste into IE11 without enabling Clipboard Access in Internet Explorer(Allow Programmatic clipboard access).

Also the documentation in version clearly says “Handsontable is a JavaScript library for editable tables with basic copy-paste compatibility with Excel and Google Docs”
You can also find the same in https://github.com/handsontable/handsontable/releases/tag/0.14.1
Open the attachment Source code(zip) and go to \handsontable-0.14.1\dist\handsontable.full.js
file shows above documentation.

My question is: why copy from excel and paste into IE 11 handsontable UI working directly(without enabling Allow Programmatic clipboard access) in version 0.14.0 but not in 7.3.0?

You’re welcome.

I guess that we can close the subject as everything’s clear.
