ScratchPadContents Property
Gets or sets the contents of the Scratch Pad.
Object.ScratchPadContents As String
Scratch Pad accepts both text strings and Rich Text Format (RTF) strings.

To empty the Scratch Pad contents, pass in an empty string. (Do not pass in Nothing.)

This sample writes content to the Scratch Pad and then retrieves it in Rich Text Format and as plain text.
Sub GetContentFromScratchpad()
    Dim contents As String
    'Load some content into the scratch pad
    ThisIbmTerminal.Productivity.ScratchPadContents = "Some text"
    'Retrieve the content in rich text format
    contents = ThisIbmTerminal.Productivity.ScratchPadContents
    Debug.Print "Rich text format: " + contents
    'Now retreive the content as plain text
    contents = ThisIbmTerminal.Productivity.ScratchPadContentsAsText
    Debug.Print "Plain text format: " + contents
End Sub
