Accessing the clipboard from within an indicator

I am wondering if anyone has tried to access the system clipboard (ctrl-c, ctrl-v, copy, paste) from within the code of an indicator to either obtain values to use in calculating the indicator, or to paste graphic objects directly into a chart, since lines, rectangles, and other graphic objects can be copied and pasted into a chart manually. I imagine it might be something like overriding the plot method, which seems to be an approach some use to plot to regions of the chart not accessible by the normal draw and plot methods. What seems to be available in the NinjaScript editor of the System.Windows.Forms namespace seems to be either a subset of, or alternative to, what's described in the MSDN library. Any thoughts or guidance in the form of examples or code snippets is much appreciated. Thanks, Tempo

This is what I use in one of my strategies:

using System.Windows.Forms;
...
if (Clipboard.ContainsText (TextDataFormat.Text)) {
string str=Clipboard.GetText(TextDataFormat.Text);
}

Thank you for the speedy reply, Monpere. I will give it a shot in my indicator, and report back. If anyone else has thoughts, I would appreciate them, too.
Again, thanks
