If you need it in Text Fields (Textbox, etc) they have in built function for same and ..

If you want to read the Windows API than search for the Windows API call in Vb.net in MSDN
or

Yes, you need to be specific about where you want to cut,copy,paste.  The method of doing so will differ depending on what controls/what you are trying to copy.

ahmadfuwad,

It's quit easy... If you have a textbox or a Richtextbox you can use these commando's:

  (rich)textbox.copy
  (rich)textbox.cut
  (rich)textbox.paste
  (rich)textbox.undo

All the sections that are copied/pasted/... are put into clipboard (or retrieved from...). So for this you don't need clipboard !!

ONE REMARK!! >> if you try to do a paste, and there is currently a image stored on clipboard, then the paste will (as you will understand) not work in the textbox.

---------

if you want to use clipboard via API; use this solution I gave a few week ago, look here (maybe you need it):

sorry, but the sentence "...So for this you don't need clipboard !!..."  

must be : "...So for this you don't need Windows API !!..." ...
