Solution Pivot-oriented (but for sources Pivot):
- implement your own version of Clipboard (maybe starting by copying org.apache.pivot.wtk.Clipboard), to use only with this kind of images
- the point for the workaround is the method public static Manifest getContent()
- implement your own version of RemoteManifest, and call it from the previous method
- the point here is the method public Image getImage()
Note that the proposed fix that uses eclipse SWT is aligned with this solution.
After looking better at Clipboard and related classes I have to say that I'm sorry but it has many static methods and variables, so we can't do so much without breaking compatibility ... so I'll close this issue for Pivot (but finish to commit test files). And if you agree, we can continue together under pivot-contrib ... tell me if/when you are ready.
Otherwise, you can work on a more Java AWT-oriented solution (where the rela problem is), like working on DataFlavors available on this clipboard (see addFlavorListener), but I'm sorry, I can't say you so much on this.
Be free to post here some update.
Thanks for now.
