Hi waddhah,

How are you trying to use this?

If this for textboxes and the like? Most of the .Net controls support the "Select" and "Copy" and "Paste" functions which you can call instead of using Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.

Alternatively, you can use the SendKeys functionality,

SendKeys.Send("^C") for Ctrl+C
