Public Sub 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.
Dim txtBox As New TextBox()
Dim pwdBox As 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!".
