Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the Copy method to copy the text that is selected in a TextBox control.

private void copyText(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    myTextBox.Copy();
}
Private Sub copyText(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    myTextBox.Copy()
End Sub

Remarks

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.
