This sounds simple I know but is there a simple way to copy the selected text of a memo to the clipboard directly?

I know about memo1.copytoclipboard but it only copies all the controls text.. or am I missing something?

you can send the memo a:

WM_COPY

wParam = 0; // not used; must be zero
lParam = 0; // not used; must be zero
 

An application sends the WM_COPY message to an edit control or combo box to copy the current selection to the clipboard in CF_TEXT format.

var Clip:TClipBoard;
    SelText:string;
begin
    Clip:=TClipBoard.Create;
    Memo1.Selstart:=0;
    Memo1.sellength:=25;
    Seltext:=Copy(Memo1.Lines.GetText,Memo1.SelStart,Memo1.SelLength);
    Clip.SetTextBuf(pchar(SelText));
end;



/// obviously, you can disregard the part where I set SelStart and SelLength if you are selcting the text manually.


Good luck!!
