Copies the current selection of the text editing control to the Clipboard.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls.Primitives
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public void Copy()
You cannot use methods in XAML.

A copy operation copies the selected text to the Clipboard. Note that the selected text is not removed from the text editing control in the process. A similar method, Cut, moves the current selection to the Clipboard and removes the selected text from the text editing control in the process.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Copy method to copy the text that is selected within a TextBox control.

private void copyText(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    myTextBox.Copy();
}

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
