Copy text into the Windows Clipboard with .NET

To copy text to the clipboard with .NET Framework, usually you have used .NET wrapper of Windows Forms:

System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.SetText

However, in the new .NET world, where we want to support many operating systems, this wrapper is rather a hindrance. Thank goodness someone took the trouble and created a very nice, stable library: .NET CopyText on GitHub

ClipboardService.SetText("Text to place in clipboard");
string text = ClipboardService.GetText();

and even async is finally supported

await ClipboardService.SetTextAsync("Text to place in clipboard");
string text = await ClipboardService.GetTextAsync();
