How to: Copy Code Metrics Results to the Clipboard

You can copy results from the Code Metrics Results window to the clipboard and paste them to another application, such as a text editor or word processor. Each copy puts multiple lines of information into the clipboard.

    Project: TranslateSdkToc.csproj
