Creating a Smart Action for pasting (and uploading) a file from my clipboard


I’m currently working on customizing my Forest Admin interface, and I have a specific task in mind that I’m trying to achieve.

I’ve seen on your documentation how to implement a file uploader but I was wondering if we could implement a smart action that would allow users to paste an image/file from their clipboard (instead of using a drag&drop/fileuploader) and upload it.

Essentially, I want users to be able to click a button, paste an image from their clipboard, and have that image uploaded.

Could someone please provide a step-by-step guide or point me in the right direction on how to accomplish this within Forest Admin?

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Hi again,
It looks like I could create a smart view in order to code the clipboard pasting feature. This smart view could then trigger a smart action to do the upload. Can you confirm that?
Thank you
