Hi all.

I'm facing another issue with the copy to clipboard functionality

I'm trying to use the below code to copy to clipboard but i get this message: 'SetDataObject' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Form.Button'

How can i fix this.

Thanks

    Private Sub clipboard_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles clipboard.Click
        DataGridView1.SelectAll()
        If DataGridView1.GetClipboardContent Is Nothing Then
            MessageBox.Show("Nothing selected to copy to clipboard.")
        Else
            Me.DataGridView1.ClipboardCopyMode = DataGridViewClipboardCopyMode.EnableWithoutHeaderText
            clipboard.SetDataObject(Me.DataGridView1.GetClipboardContent)
        End If
    End Sub
