Public Sub Copy

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 in a TextBox control.

Private Sub copyText(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    myTextBox.Copy()
End Sub
