If
Text1.text="Text"
Label1.Caption="Text"
Then...


Private Sub Command1_CLick()
Text2.text=Text1.text
End Sub


Private Sub Command2_Click()
Label2.caption=label1.caption
End Sub

Select the control - Edit/Copy then Edit/Paste.
You will then be creating a control array...

Reference each 'copy' of this control array by using the Index property (starting at 0 for the first and so on)...

You can also create more at runtime...see here: http://www.vbexplorer.com/VBExplorer/vb_feature/april2000/april2000.asp

You can not copy/paste a control at run time.

This is because unilike VB IDE clipboard object won't hold the control information .

However you can simlute it:

Step 1:

set form keypreview property to true


Step 2:

User select a control, so control is highlighted, and presses Control+C you use form keypress event
to trap this keys.

Step3:

User  presses Control+V(paste) , again you trap these keys and do the paste on position X and Y of form

Which are defined in Form1.CurrentX and form1.currentY
