I am using MSVC 4.2 and W95. I want to allow the user to
mark text in a listbox and copy it to the clipboard. I
hope I do not have to go ownerdraw, because I like the
smooth scrolling in the default listbox. Can I do this
easily, and how ?

There is no direct function to do so. What you can do is:
1. Use CListBox::GetText to get the text string.
2. Use Clipboard functions to copy it to the clipboard.

If you need further help, please let me know.
