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)

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Clipboard.Clear
Toolbar1.Buttons(3).Enabled = False
End Sub
 
Private Sub Form_Load()
Toolbar1.Buttons(1).Enabled = False
Toolbar1.Buttons(2).Enabled = False
 
If Clipboard.GetText = "" Then
    Toolbar1.Buttons(3).Enabled = False
Else
    Toolbar1.Buttons(3).Enabled = True
End If
 
End Sub
 
Private Sub Text1_Click()
If Text1.SelLength > 0 Then

Else
    Toolbar1.Buttons(1).Enabled = False
    Toolbar1.Buttons(2).Enabled = False
