I used the following links and resources to build this module.

Joomla Router Ref:

Javascript - Copy to clipboard

With Javascript you cannot directly copy anything you want. The **select()*- function on works on items the user can select normally.

The workarounds on the internet work by creating an element that can be selected like a textarea, copy the required data into it, select and copy that data now in the <textarea> and then <textarea> is deleted.

I rendered the non-SEF URL directly into a hidden which i can unhide, select and copy to the clipboard and of course re-hide the element.
