Hello,
I have a toolbar that contains a cut, copy, and paste button and I need them to enable/disable accordingly with my TextStandard textbox.  So for example, if my cursor is in the TextStandard textbox (nothing's selected) and I have text within my clipboard, the cut and copy buttons should become disabled and the paste button should be enabled.  Now if i select atleast a character of text, all 3 buttons should be enabled.  If I don't have anything within my clipboard, the Paste button should be disabled. How do i accomplish this? (exactly like MS word)
