you need ChangeListener and Clipboard to accomplish your task :)

Example Code :

Clipboard clipboard = Clipboard.getSystemClipboard(); 
  // add listner to your tableview selecteditemproperty   
userTable.getSelectionModel().selectedItemProperty().addListener( new ChangeListener() {
              // this method will be called whenever user selected row
             public void chnaged(ObservableValue observale, Object oldValue,Object newValue) {
               UserClass selectedUser = (UserClass)newValue;
             ClipboardContent content = new ClipboardContent();
                 // make sure you override toString in UserClass

If i understood you correctly, you want to retrieve the row number of the cell that is currently selected inside a TableView.

To do this, request the SelectionModel of the TableView:

    // tv is of type TableView
    TableView.TableViewSelectionModel selectionModel = tv.getSelectionModel();
    ObservableList selectedCells = selectionModel.getSelectedCells();
    TablePosition tablePosition = (TablePosition) selectedCells.get(0);
    int row = tablePosition.getRow(); // yields the row that the currently selected cell is in
