Hi there,

I've placed a WebBrowser component on my form and let's say an editbox as well. When I select a text from a page loaded on my WebBrowser component and copy the selected text, I cannot paste it in to the EditBox. Is there any way for that?

I tried this, it works fine....

Right click on Browser, select copy to copy selected text to clipboard.
Right click on Edit , select paste to past selected text from clipboard to Edit Box

You maay need to do the folowing:

you could try adding the following lines to the bottom of your main unit

initialization
  OleInitialize(nil);

finalization
  OleUninitialize;
