Paste Method

PasswordBox.Paste Method ()


Replaces the current selection in the PasswordBox with the contents of the Clipboard.

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

public void Paste()

This method does not clear the contents of the PasswordBox before the paste; it will either replace the current selection with pasted content, or insert the pasted content at the current cursor position.

The following example shows how to paste content into a PasswordBox with the Paste method.

// A TextBox will serve as a contrived means of putting our test 
// password on the Clipboard.
TextBox txtBox = new TextBox();
PasswordBox pwdBox = new PasswordBox();

// Put some content in the TextBox, and copy it to the Clipboard.
txtBox.Text = "Open Sesame!";

// Paste the contents of the Clipboard into the PasswordBox.  After this
// call, the value of pwdBox.Password == "Open Sesame!".
