Add selected texts from Listbox to the message body where cursor is placed

Post by jonnathanjons »

Hello ,

I have posted this in another forum but could not get a reply and hence posting it here..
I have a text file where I keep updating urls for easy access as I am focal for many geos. When I get queries I reply by posting relevant urls for them. I will be great If I can achieve this by running a macro which can paste the url in the message body where I position the cursor in the message body while draft an email.

I have partially achieved this by creating a Listbox as suggested in another forum but it only paste the url in the subject area which is not useful to me.
I even tried to tweak the script but its pasting only at the topline of the message body which is again not useful to me.

If I can get a script which can achieve this it will be really appreciated.

the code I used is in this link https://www.slipstick.com/developer/cod ... file-list/
but it paste the url only to the subject field . I would like to have them pasted in the message body where I draft the email ie where I position my cursor.
