Title: Copy and paste text to and from the clipboard C#
Using the clipboard to copy and paste text is simple. Use the Clipboard object's SetText method to copy text to the clipboard as in the following code.
// Copy text to the clipboard.
private void btnCopy_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
Use the Clipboard object's GetText method to retrieve the text that's in the clipboard as in the following code.
// Paste text from the clipboard.
private void btnPaste_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
txtPaste.Text = Clipboard.GetText();
That's all there is to it! In later posts I'll show how you can copy and paste other kinds of data such as images or objects of your own creation.
