What do I need to change?

    protected void cmdGetResearchList_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // Builds the symbol list for nasdaq.com
    {
        string strSymbolName1 = "";
        foreach (GridViewRow row in grdWatchList.Rows)
        {
            strSymbolName1 += row.Cells[2].Text + ",";
        }
        txtResearchList.Text = strSymbolName1;
        Clipboard.SetText(txtResearchList.Text);   // Error here

    }

Compiles but errors.

Current thread must be set to single thread apartment (STA) mode before OLE calls can be made. Ensure that your Main function has STAThreadAttribute marked on it.

What should I change?

Thanks,

I'm sorry, but you're trying to paste text to the clipboard from a web page?

I am trying to paste text to the clipboard from my own web page.

This code is in my aspx.cs file.

The string is "UNTD,SAIA,HUBG,STR,ARTNA,NWS,AGM,CBU,VLY,"

Would it help to just save the text to a file?  I'm not sure you can paste to the clipboard from a web page.

There seems to be no resolution. I will copy the text to a popup window.
