Disable copying, cutting and pasting in my richedit

Hi,

I got some code from EE to disable cutting, copying and pasting in my richedit, but the code
has a problem when caps lock was off, I made some change but it didn't work. I need a help.

Thanks

      if (ssCtrl in Shift) and ((key = Ord('V')) or (key = Ord('C')) or (key = Ord('X')) or
      (key = Ord('v')) or (key = Ord('c')) or (key = Ord('x'))) then
        if Clipboard.HasFormat(CF_TEXT) then begin
          ClipBoard.Clear;
          key := 0;
        end;

The code came from this page

this works for me with capslock both on and off

procedure TForm1.RichEdit1KeyDown(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word; Shift:
    TShiftState);
const FORBIDEN_KEYS = [Ord('c'), Ord('C'), Ord('v'), Ord('V'), Ord('x'), Ord('X')];
begin
  if (ssCtrl in Shift) and (Key in FORBIDEN_KEYS) then begin
   Clipboard.Clear;
  end;
end;

are you sure of that?

Because I tested with a line in my richedit and I could copy and past it in the edit1.text.
