To copy text to the clipboard using Javascript, you can use the following code:

// Select the text element
var text = document.getElementById("text-to-copy");

// Create a range object and select the text
var range = document.createRange();
range.selectNode(text);

// Add the range to the clipboard
window.getSelection().addRange(range);
document.execCommand("copy");

// Clear the selection
window.getSelection().removeAllRanges();

In this example, replace "text-to-copy" with the id of the element containing the text you want to copy. When the code runs, it creates a range object and selects the text. Then, it adds the range to the clipboard using document.execCommand("copy"). Finally, it clears the selection from the page so that the user doesn't see any unexpected changes.
