How can SilkTest retrieve text which has been copied to the Clipboard?

Once Ctrl-C has been used to copy text, it is then held in the Clipboard. From there, SilkTest can be used to retrieve it. The following code illustrates how to do this:

[-] testcase one () appstate none
    [ ] list of string lsText
    [ ] string sText
    [ ] lsText = Clipboard.GetText()
    [ ] 
    [ ] listprint(lsText)
