I was trying to use the onpaste event with a textarea element to access the clipboard’s content. I wrote a custom event handler but then I got stuck when I was about to find a way to decode the pasted value. I cannot simply access it through an object key like how
Html.Events.targetValue works, I need to call the method
event.clipboardData.getData("text"). How’s this this possible with Elm?
I cannot use ports here because I’m in the view layer. The only viable solution that comes to my mind is to create a custom element based on the TextareaElement and handle the paste event there. Is this really the way to do this?
