Copy & Past in VB 2012 texboxes

At run time, I want the user to be able to copy from one text box and past to another textbox in a visual basic 2012 application. The textboxes really have nothing programmable going on with them. They (Textbox1 through Textbox12) are on a windows form for the purpose of being able to type info in them and printing the form out using "printform" from VB power pack. I am looking for code that will hopefully handle all 12 text boxes on this form. Thank you for any help.

Idle Mind,

   I was thinking that too. So I need to find out why "at run time" I can not simply Ctrl-C in one Textbox and Ctrl-V to another textbox copying the contents from one to another. I'll look into prperties to see if something is turned off or on that shouldn't be.

You must have set ShortcutsEnabled() for your TextBoxes to False.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.
