Clipboard hangs up other applications



  • Hello
    I am a QtNewbie, and I have a problem with the use of the clipboard.
    If I execute the following code :

    QApplication applic(argc,argv);
    QClipboard *clipboard = QApplication::clipboard();
    clipboard->setText("blablabla");

    Any application which tries to paste the content of the clipboard hangs up, and wakes up only if I kill the QApplication applic.
    It seems Qt doesn't release the clipboard after setting text. I couldn't find any method to do this. What am I missing ?

    By cons, if I copy to the clipboard without Qt (via OpenClipboard ... SetClipboardData ... CloseClipboard) everything works fine.

    My OS is Windows XP (sorry...).
