Here is an example...

Basicly I create a second TListView and uses a listitem there as a buffer:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, ComCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ListView1: TListView;
    CopyButton: TButton;
    PasteButton: TButton;
    procedure CopyButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormDestroy(Sender: TObject);
    procedure PasteButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;
  BufferItem : TListItem;
  BufferItems : TListItems;
  BufferListView : TCustomListView;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
 BufferListView := TCustomListView.CreateParented(handle);
 BufferItems := TListItems.Create(BufferListView);
 BufferItems.BeginUpdate;
 BufferItem := TListItem.Create(BufferItems);
end;

procedure TForm1.FormDestroy(Sender: TObject);
begin
 BufferListView.free;
end;

procedure TForm1.CopyButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
// Copy Item
begin
 if Assigned(ListView1.Selected) then begin
  bufferItem.Caption := 'test';
  BufferItem.Assign(ListView1.Selected);
 end;
end;

procedure TForm1.PasteButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
 ListView1.Items.Add.Assign(BufferItem);
end;

end.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thank you probie:

1. you give out copy and paste sample,
   how about CUT and paste?
2. Your sample only work with single
   records, how about multivalues?
   I mean if i want cut 5 records at
   the same time and then paste them   back again, how to do it?


Thanks
