Can anyone a specific task I'm trying to achieve.

I have a form with a text box. Currently if user wanted to copy all the text in the textbox, they would have to highlight all the text and right click and select copy.  

I'd like to give the user the ability to copy all text with one click.

thanks,

john

Javascript would be enought..

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

function CopyText()
{
   r=document.forms[0].text_area.createTextRange();
   r.select();
   r.execCommand('copy');
}

</SCRIPT>
<center>
<form name="select_all">

<input type=text name="text_area" rows="10" cols="80" value="1 2 3 ">

<br>
<input type="button" value="Highlight & Copy Text"  onClick="javascript:this.form.text_area.focus();this.form.text_area.select();CopyText()">
