In this article, we will create a program that has a copy and paste functions of any Text Documents. I already made this tutorial in vb6.0 but here we will use vb.net.
Now, let's start this tutorial!
1. Let's start with creating a Windows Form Application for this tutorial by following the following steps in Microsoft Visual Studio: Go to File
, click New Project
, and choose Windows Application
2. Next, insert two Buttons for the Copy and Paste Functions named Button1
labeled it as "Copy
", and Button2
labeled it as "Paste
". Add also two TextBox named TextBox1 and TextBox2
from the toolbox. You must design your interface like this:
3. For button1_click as Copy button, put this code below.
namespace makes the system function easier to locate by giving access to commonly used methods, properties, events, and tools. The clipboard here provides methods to place data from the system Clipboard that we have set the text value of TextBox1.
4. For button2_click as Paste button, put this code below.
If My.Computer.Clipboard.ContainsText Then
TextBox2.Text = My.Computer.Clipboard.GetText
If the system ClipBoard contains a text that we have set earlier in textbox1, then the copied text will be retrieved its value as we have the GetText method of the clipboard that will be displayed in textbox2.
