I need to paste from the Clipboard anywhere in Windows. In other words I either want to have a Delphi command that would take the Clipboard text and paste it or to simulate CTRL+V and effectively paste the clipbaord text. This is outside of my Delphi Application without it having focus. I would really appreciate some examples.

You could use this:

procedure TMainform.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Keybd_event(VK_CONTROL, 0, 0, 0);
  Keybd_event(Byte('V'), 0, 0, 0);
  Keybd_event(Byte('V'), 0, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0);
  Keybd_event(VK_CONTROL, 0, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0);
end;

Cheers Dennis
