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.

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
