React state changes between ClipboardPasting and ClipboardPasted

    I am looking to add a state change in React when the ClipboardPasting event fires, so that the user sees a loading screen before the data is actually pasted into the worksheet (and the ClipboardPasted event fires). Is there any way to make the pasting delay a bit in the ClipboardPasting event handler so that the UI can have a second to repaint?

    Hi Danel,

    You may override the paste action for the required functionality. Please refer to the following code snippet and let us know if you face any issues.

    let old = GC.Spread.Sheets.Commands.paste.execute;
    GC.Spread.Sheets.Commands.paste.execute = function () {
    //show your loader here
    setTimeout(() => {
    old.apply(this, arguments);
    //hide you loader here

    }, 1000);

    Hi Avinash,

    We tried this, but now pasting from Excel doesn't work at all :(
