hi

you can use the tcanvas.copyrect method. As TargetCanvas, you can use a run-time created TImage and copy this with the
TClipboard.assign to the clipboard.

ok, here's the example. As you can see, I use a TBitmpa instead of a second TImage.

uses clipbrd;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
Bitmap: tbitmap;
rect1,rect2: trect;
begin
Bitmap:=tbitmap.create;
rect2.top:=10;  //*Define the area to be copied
rect2.left:=10;
rect2.Right:=100;
rect2.Bottom:=100; //**

//Define where in bitmap the copied part of Image1 should be
rect1.top:=0;
rect1.left:=0;
rect1.Right:=90;
rect1.Bottom:=90;

Bitmap.width:=100; //Very important! if you forget this, it will
Bitmap.height:=100;//it will not work!

Bitmap.Canvas.CopyRect(rect1,image1.canvas,rect2);//Copy to Bmp
clipboard.Assign(Bitmap);//Copy to the clipboard
Bitmap.free;
end;

regards
