ClipboardItem: types property

Secure context: This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

The read-only types property of the ClipboardItem interface returns an Array of MIME types available within the ClipboardItem


An Array of available MIME types.


In the below example, we're returning all items on the clipboard via the method. Then checking the types property for available types before utilizing the ClipboardItem.getType() method to return the Blob object. If no clipboards contents is found for the specified type, an error is returned.

async function getClipboardContents() {
  try {
    const clipboardItems = await;

    for (const clipboardItem of clipboardItems) {
      for (const type of clipboardItem.types) {
        const blob = await clipboardItem.getType(type);
        // we can now use blob here
  } catch (err) {
    console.error(, err.message);
