There are a set of controls including Text Boxes in a Form.

I am pasting a text onto a Text Box using Mouse/Ctrl+V. Is there any way can the Form Identify in which Control/Text Box the value has been pasted. Can I access the value which has been pasted ?
Is there any API Event or Function through which it can be detected.

Easy if you use the Text1_Change event or similar for each control that you could paste into.

If you set the form's KeyPreview property to True, you could use something like this, as an example of the code to implement:


Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
    If (Shift And vbCtrlMask) Then
        If KeyCode = Asc("V") Or KeyCode = Asc("v") Then
            MsgBox "Text pasted into " & Me.ActiveControl.Name & _
                vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "Text pasted: " & Chr(34) & _
                Clipboard.GetText & Chr(34)
        End If
    End If
End Sub
