#2312 new task

clipboard images with html5 client

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 3.0
Component: html5 Version: 2.5.x
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

We want to transfer the pixel data as image/png and set it as best we can using setData or newer methods (#1844).

See THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO COPYING AND PASTING IN JAVASCRIPT

The difficulty here is that because the html5 clibpoard is greedy, we need to choose png as soon as we get the clipboard event so we can send the binary data with the token.

As per Chrome Platform Status: Asynchronous Clipboard API: Support for images and other data types is still under development.

comment:4 Changed 6 months ago by Antoine Martin

MDN: Clipboard: only Firefox has support for read() and write. (since Firefox 63)

comment:5 Changed 6 months ago by Antoine Martin

Firefox only: clipboard.setImageData The image is provided as an ArrayBuffer? containing the encoded image. JPEG and PNG formats are supported.

Chrome: chrome.clipboard setImageData : Since Chrome 76. Warning: this is the current Dev channel.

comment:6 Changed 6 months ago by Antoine Martin

The image API is now available in chrome beta: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=150835#c118 This can also be enabled in M75 (released in stable tomorrow) through enabling the experimental flag here:
chrome://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features

support for images in and out with latest chrome - almost working

comment:7 Changed 6 months ago by Antoine Martin

The patch above almost works, but there is a problem with chrome: the tabs crash... reproducer in attachment/ticket/2312/clipboard.html.

With the new read() and write() API calls, we could modify the new clipboard code to work more like the regular X11 asynchronous clipboard and return the list of data types it supports, without bundling the data with it. Saving lots of bandwidth and making it more reliable when there are multiple options: the client application can then choose the format most suitable instead of us picking one.
This would require a reversible mapping from clipboard data types to the wire ones. Tricky?

It would be useful to collect the list of mimetypes we can get from the async API so we can handle them properly rather than assuming we just get UTF8 for text and image/png for images.

Merged the image transfer clipboard code (disabled by default) in r22857.
(so it won't bitrot)

chrome bug reported here: clipboard.write can crash the tab

comment:10 Changed 5 months ago by Antoine Martin

They claim that the bug has been fixed, but it's still present in the latest beta builds.
Version 76.0.3809.80 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)

Also, the png data from the example I have given is clearly valid, so it should not be throwing a DOMException in the first place: bug 981006: comment 22

working clipboard image copy

comment:11 Changed 5 months ago by Antoine Martin

Owner: changed from Antoine Martin to alas
Status: assignednew

Updates:

  • r23310 fixes the Blob instantiation, copying images to the clipboard works!
  • r23311 (+rr23312 fixup) enables it by default
  • r23313 same for server-to-client

Tested by:

  • starting a TCP server
  • connecting with chrome 76 and enabling the feature (see comment:6)
  • within the session, using eog to browse some local images
  • then control-C to copy the image to the clipboard
  • on the client, run gimp and create a new picture
  • paste the image into gimp

Things to consider:

  • the copy is asynchronous and if you alt-tab away from the browser window quickly after copying the image, chrome will fail and complain that the document is not active (as a log message only..)
  • size limit: clipboard transfers are not rate-limited, so maybe we should re-use the file-transfer code for chunking them? or downsize the image if we find that the data is too big? (16MB is now the limit - which is pretty big for one packet!)
  • we don't test for the "png" clipboard feature in the browser, only for the new API availability - though in practice the end result is almost the same: if copying images is not supported then it will fail but transferring an image as plain text is unlikely to be useful anyway (ie: with eog, you get the file path as text, which is not useful)
  • having clipit running can still cause problem, even though we try to ignore it
  • some clipboard attributes should be refactored: #2370
  • when sharing the same session with multiple clients, the type of data transferred for clipboard copying will change depending on what the client is capable of handling (should work - not tested)
  • could add "jpeg" support, looks like chrome has this already
  • by parsing image data on the server side (adding the image timestamp and optional overlay), we ensure that the image data is valid png as produced by python-pillow, but this may also strip metadata from the file

@afarr: this should be of interest to you

Just as an FYI - Chrome 76 now seems to be stable (76.0.3809.132), but testing without nocicing the enabling detail of comment6... it is still failing.

comment:13 Changed 3 months ago by Antoine Martin

it is still failing.

Does it work if you enable the experimental features as per comment:6?

comment:15 Changed 7 weeks ago by alas

Decided to update to 4.0 and try - 4.0-r24232 with Chrome 77 on Windows 7 as html5 client (did not explicitly enable the experimental features).

Launched the fedora 30 server with my favorite command.

xpra start :13 --no-daemon --bind-tcp=0.0.0.0:1234 --bind-ws=0.0.0.0:1237 --start-child=xterm --start-child=xterm --exit-with-children

... then launched chromium-browser from an xterm and tried to copy one of the images from https://www.techjunkie.com/setup-64-bit-guest-virtualbox/ and paste it into a word doc (.txt files don't take pasted images so word seems simplest?).

Oddly, it looks like I was seeing behavior similar to that with attempts to copy/paste from an in-session launched Firefox browser (#2452).

I copied one of the images locally, and pasted into word doc locally - successfully.

I then copied the site address and pasted it into the address bar of a new tab of the server-side running chromium-browser... that was also successful.

I then tried to copy the same image, then tried to paste it into the word doc... and it pasted the url of the site, rather than an image. (Technically, it triggered the tracebacks in #2463, and I accidentally copied some of that content, then pasted that into the word doc... then went back to copy the image... and it STILL wound up pasting the url... which means either that the right-click copy image option is simply not doing anything... and the server-side clipboard didn't update when copying or pasting the accidental copy of the traceback... and the second attempt to right-click copy the image somehow resulted in the url that was last pasted ... still... being the contents of the clipboard, or perhaps that copy attempt server-side is what re-sync'd those previous clipboard contents into the local clipboard?)

It also fails when trying from a server-side Firefox.

It also fails pasting into a server-side gedit (not sure it would ever work with gedit)... but then I noticed that I also can't paste text into a gedit application server-side... not even clipboard content from a server-side chromium-browser to the server-side gedit.

In any case, the traceback seems to also be causing issues with rendering of text, so I'll leave this test here.

comment:16 Changed 7 weeks ago by Antoine Martin

That's an unlucky coincidence, there was a regression in r24231, fixed in r24247. See #2461

The 3.0.1 builds had been fixed, the 4.0 beta builds had not..

Tried some more with 3.0.1-r24252 fedora 30 server with Chrome 77 on Windows 7. Didn't switch the experimental property on (but shouldn't need to with Chrome 77 I suspect).

Clipboard behavior for text is as mentioned in #2452 - but I am still unable to copy/paste images from inside the session out to any local applications.

I tried to copy images from chromium-browser or firefox server-side and then paste into word or paint locally with no luck.

I then tried downloading an image to the fedora server and opening it server side with pinta to edit, selecting regions and copying them to the clipboard... which I was then able to paste into server-side email composition fields (using the right-click paste option only, never successfully with keyboard shortcuts)... but when trying to then paste into word locally I usually get nothing, but occasionally I get the text 'image.png', and sometimes get a little 'OBJ' text icon surrounded by a dotted frame? Trying to paste into paint I get an object frame with a ? inside.

Meanwhile, trying to copy an image locally (the xpra icon, why not?) and paste it into an email compose field or Pinta application fails... in the case of trying to paste into an email compose field I see a warning about more than 30 requests...

While, trying to paste into pinta I get a warning that there is no image in the clipboard, and I get this in the server logs.

2019-10-29 15:07:00,152 Warning: PRIMARY selection request for 'UTF8_STRING' timed out
2019-10-29 15:07:00,152  request 51 at time=0

I guess I'll pass this back - is there a debug flag in particular I should enable perhaps?

comment:18 Changed 6 weeks ago by alas

Fancy that - I suppose -d clipboard might be a good start?

Looks like there's a traceback when I open a lawn gnome image in pinta, select a portion of the image, and use the 'copy' button to load it to the clipboard.

After repeating the copy of the xpra icon to test results of pasting into local word - the above logs text was pasted again... so the copy event server-side is failing to sync any contents to the local clipboard.

I tried it with a Fedora 31 client and it worked perfectly on the first attempt (not something that happens every day!):

  • control-c to copy an image from eog running inside the session (connected using Chrome 78.0.3904.70)
  • then pasting it into gimp running locally with control-v

Here's what the debug log shows ("clipboard" debugging enabled on the connect.html page):

clipboard copy event, clipboard buffer= Version 78.0.3904.70 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)
clipboard token received
targets= ["image/png"]
target= image/png is valid: true
dtype= image/png dformat= 8 wire-encoding= bytes
png image received
created blob Blob {size: 4154, type: "image/png"}
created ClipboardItem ClipboardItem {types: Array(1)}
created ClipboardItem list [ClipboardItem]
copied png image to clipboard

Then I tried it on win7... and nothing!?
Because navigator.clipboard returns null. r24328 will now log a message to the javascript console when that happens.
Then I remembered that I had to use https instead of http when connecting to something other than localhost (after telling chrome that yes, I do want to trust this self-signed cert), and things just worked as expected. (same steps as above, Chrome 78)

Note: your browser is likely to ask you about allowing xpra to access the clipboard. If you somehow refuse, it won't ask again and things just won't work from then on... I'm not saying that this is the case here, just something to be aware of.

You can verify that the client's browser has support for copying images on the server using:

$ xpra info | grep clipboard.preferred-targets
features.clipboard.preferred-targets=('UTF8_STRING', 'TEXT', 'STRING', 'text/plain', 'image/png')

image/png should be in that list.

Ok, tried again with the 4.0-r24412 & a Firefox html5 local client on Windows 7 - the image wouldn't sync across clipboards.

Connected a session with my usual launch command and used server-side chromium-browser to search for and then copy a random lawn gnome image (https://ak1.ostkcdn.com/images/products/25491413/Lawn-Gnome-Statue-Fun-Classic-Style-Resin-Figurine-by-Pure-Garden-cd4b7582-e54f-48f1-af8e-fdf45816efe3.jpg).
Then opened a gmail compose server-side and pasted the image, just to be sure it was on the clipboard server-side (success).
Then I try to paste into a Word doc server side (Windows 7 still)... and the image hasn't sync'd (pastes previous local clipboard contents).

This is the only thing I saw in server-side logs with -d clipboard on the initial copy (prior to then successfully pasting into an email compose field also server-side, then failing to paste locally - with the last local clipboard contents being pasted).

Double checked and I'm getting the same behavior with Chrome local html5 client.

I guess I'll pass this back to you to look at once you decide what to do with the other last clipboard details.

Testing was slightly hampered by #2479.

Then I try to paste into a Word doc server side (Windows 7 still)

I assume you mean client side here, as there's no msword you can install server side on Linux. (well, there is via wine, but let's not go there).
And I can't use your steps as I don't have msword installed on my win7 vm.
I have tested using my steps from comment:20, and those still work fine.
Then I tried copying from a Firefox window instead of eog, and that also worked fine.

So please try those first as baseline, and only after that, try your test with gmail and word. When you can't paste into gimp, it will show a warning at the bottom of the content window explaining why.
In both cases, please enable "clipboard" debugging on the connect page.
As per comment:20, this should show png image received on the server's -d clipboard output.

As with #1844 and #2452: https + grant clipboard-access permissions are required.

Re-tested with 4.0-r24461, using Chrome 78 on Windows 7 HTML5 client, and the new usual command to launch the server.

It worked!

I'm not sure what the eog mentioned in comment:20 is, but I went back to my trick of launching chromium-browser server side, searching for lawn gnomes, click a search result, open the image in a new tab, then right-click to copy the image.

I then opened a pinta window server-side and used the paste button to confirm the image was on the clipboard server-side.

I then successfully paste the image into a word doc (support for pasting images being the whole reason I opened the application)... using the right-click menu or control-v. I'm also able to copy test locally, paste server-side, then copy an image and paste back locally.

Then I checked Firefox (apparently because I'm a glutton for punishment) - I presume you are not surprised to hear that it wasn't possible to sync the images to the Firefox HTML5 client clipboard.

I'll reassign this to you to decide whether this should be closed and left to rest for a while, before tackling other HTML5 client types... or if you want to just keep using this ticket.
