Guest

I have create a very simple windows form application. I am using textbox
control, but I am unable to copy and paste text into the textbox by using
keyboard hot key.
Anyone come across this problem before?

Thanks

Can you copy and paste into Notepad? If not, another process has locked
the clipboard.

Hello Anthony,

More Common than that, just check that you have not set up CTRL+V as an accelerator
in one of the menus... Sigh* I do that sometimes.

Thanks Cyril,
I can do CTRL+V on Notepad. I can do copy and paste by using mouse on the
..Net application.

Hello Anthony

I had the same issue.
Probably you are using the toolstrip menu with the default settings.
Since they are setup to get the ctrl-c and v, the textbox is not gettings
them.

look at the following message:

(so it did not work, but at least I know why)

then I found a post in the vb newsgroup
http://msdn.microsoft.com/newsgroups/Default.aspx?query=pasteToolStripMenuItem&dg=&cat=en-us-msdn&lang=en&cr=US&pt=&catlist=774F24A2-F71F-425F-AC2B-DC48AB0DA5C9&dglist=&ptlist=&exp=&sloc=en-us
thats a workaround, but in VB ;-)

cheers Harry

I could not open this link specified above for workaround.
Could you please send me this workaround? I have a menu strip on the form and cannot use keyboard (CTRL-C, CTRL-V) to copy and paste in text boxes.
Users need it asap! Please help!
