TextBoxBase.Cut Method

Removes the current selection from the text editing control and copies it to the Clipboard.

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

public void Cut ()
public void Cut ()
public function Cut ()
You cannot use methods in XAML.

A cut operation removes the current selection from the text editing control and copies it to the Clipboard. Note that the selected text is removed (cut) from the text editing control in the process. A similar method, Copy, copies the current selection to the Clipboard, but does not remove the selected text from the text editing control.

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

private void cutText(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    myTextBox.Cut();
}
