Create an Application

Create a folder with name js-copy. Create a file index.html into it.

Open index.html and write this complete code into it.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Copy To Clipboard Functionality JQuery/Javascript</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/sweetalert2@9.17.2/dist/sweetalert2.min.css" />
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
</head>

<body>

  <div class="container">
    <h2>Copy To Clipboard Functionality JQuery/Javascript</h2>
    <div class="panel panel-primary">
      <div class="panel-heading">Copy To Clipboard Functionality JQuery/Javascript</div>
      <div class="panel-body">
        <textarea id="comment" class="form-control" rows="5" cols="50"></textarea>
        <br>
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Get Value</button>
        <p><strong>Note:</strong> Type something in the textarea and click the button to copy content.</p>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>

  <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/sweetalert2@9.17.2/dist/sweetalert2.min.js"></script>
  <script>
    $(document).ready(function() {
      $("button").click(function() {
        $("textarea").select();
        document.execCommand('copy');
        Swal.fire(
          'Great!!',
          'Content copied to clipboard',
          'success'
        )
      });
    });
  </script>
</body>

</html>

#Select content
$("textarea").select();

#Copy content
document.execCommand('copy');
