I want to copy a datatable into a clipboard so I can paste it into excel and other programs I use, how can I get that to work? If there is no way to get it to work, how can I get a datatable in the clipboard and have it tab delimited?
With a network tools application I'm putting together. I have all the information shown in text boxes and have a piece of code to copy the text to the clipboard but its not working. It works on the other text boxes but not on this one the code is.
'Private Sub Button8_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button8.Click Clipboard.SetDataObject(Label11.Text) End Sub'
Anyone know how to programmatically copy a set of controls to the clipboard, so the designer can then paste them onto the form?I want to make a function to select a set of fields from the database, make them into configured controls, then put them on the clipboard so I can paste them onto my form in the right area.
I have an explorer type window in this application I am building and I need to be able to copy files, folders, etc (in any combination) to the clipboard so that they can be pasted elsewhere. I cannot get the clipboard to copy the files in any format that will allow them to be put back out the same way.[code]...
This is kind of a two part question. I'm trying to make a very simple automated program that will run two stored procedures (one that updates, one that displays the new results) and then copies the results to the clipboard and pastes it in a new e-mail. I already have the e-mail generating and grabbing whatever is on the clipboard, but I need help with the store procedures.
Every guide I look at on Google seems to show a slightly different way of working with SQL, but I threw this together and need to know if it's working. I don't get any errors and the program "hangs" about as long as it takes for the actualy SP to run, but how do I get the "rows affect" output into a textbox or something?[code]...
I have complex UserControl (grid, edit controls for grid, etc...) and I want handle CTRL+C keyboard shortcut, however I don't want disable a native functions by edit controls (textboxes, comboboxes, etc...). If the CTRL+C is not handled by other inner controls I want handle it by myself (copy whole row(s) from grid, etc...). I tried override WndProc method in UserControl and check for WM_COPY and WM_COPYDATA, but it doesn't work. It works only on final target control (TextBox for example).
I have an Excel Addin with a button that I would like to use to copy a link to the workbook that is currently active. I am able to get the text to copy to the clipboard, however when I paste it in Word or an Email, it pastes as plain text, but I want a link. I've played with different DataFormats, but I don't think I quite grasp how to use that. Below is what I currently have:
Private Sub btnCopyLink_Click(sender As System.Object, e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonControlEventArgs) Handles btnCopyLink.Click Dim objBook As Excel.Workbook = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveWorkbook
My web page displays a list box which is populated from a sql server database. The user wants to be able to click a button which copies part of the data in the list box.I found lots of examples which do not really do what I want or do not work.

I have to automate a program that is outside of my control. The way I'm doing this is to use SendKeys.SendWait("keys") to the other program. The problem is, there are multiple fields that might be active and no way to select a single one with confidence. The fields are all different lengths, so my solution is to copy something really long, copy it to the clipboard, and look at the last character that made it though, so I know which field is selected in the other program. This overrides the clipboard, unfortunately.
I have a picture box and if I use Clipboard.SetImage(PictureBox.image) Then I can only paste the image into things like Paint and MS word. I can't paste it as a file into a folder/desktop.So how can I copy the image to to the clipboard and if gets pasted to a folder then it becomes a file?
I've researched this a little bit and everything I've seen shows how to do this using a textbox within vb.Is there a simply command i can use within a windows form (vb) that will simply say "copy any text selected" essentially mimicking the CTRL + C. This could be in a word doc, web browser, any app.
my code is to handle the maxlength in the multiline textbox (textarea) so it works just like maxlength in the singleline text box , so I handled it onkeypress , but if I copy and paste , i want to substring the length to the maxlength from the clipboard , just to behave like the singleline textbox, the problem that the clipboard works only for the internet explorer but it doesn't work in other browsersso function in JScript.js.[code]
I have a project Visual Studio VB2010 which controls PowerPoint and is working, I now want to copy a slide and put it into a Picture box but it does not work. I need to find what format PowerPoint puts it on the clipboard in. The copy is working because I can paste it into Paint or Word but when I use the code below I get nothing. If I copy a bmp/jpeg/tiff/png/meterfile in Paint it then shows in picturebox, so it appears the format is not right for powerPoint
I am returning to VB building, first time since HighSchool. I am creating a program that has many fields of data that you type into. When you click Generate Button it then writes all that data a .txt file and opens it in notepad.
From that point you copy everything in notepad and paste it into a ConnectWise HelpDesk Ticket.
My goal is to automatically get the data when clicking Generate to populate into the Clipboard, or let it write to the .txt file and then copy all the data from the .txt file into the clipboard. So all you have to do is Ctrl + V after Clicking "Generate"
I have a listbox control on my form that has SelectionMode as MultiSimple so I can select more than one item with my mouse. I added a contextMenuStrip to my form and added it to my listbox. I'd like the user to be able to select a few items in the listbox and when they right click > Copy it would copy the contents of the selected items to the Clipboard.
I want to paste a file from the clipboard that has been copied from a compress folder using VB.net. By examining the clipboard, I see there is a FileGroupDescriptorW which seems to contain some information about the file. But I have not found how to use the information to grab the file and paste it.

Im using VB.Net 2008 and is a single form program. What could be wrong.
however, I wanted to copy that as html so if someone opens outlook, word, excel etc.... I want to be able to paste into these programs and keep the format.for example, if you are in excel and highlight a range, copy it to clipboard. when you paste into outlook it keeps the cells etc...mine just pastes the raw html into the body The only way this pastes correctly into excel is if i copy a "csv" formatted string. but that dosen't keep colors, alignmnet etc...
I'm using vb.net 2010.I have a DataSet with a Table and data. MyDataSet1 which contains Table1 I want to create another table that is the same as the Table1 but without data, but it should have the columns, etc.
I am still messing around with Cntrl/Copy and Paste from a menustrip. Paste is working fine. The copy is working to a certain extent. It will copy the complete text field from one control to another. how do I determine what is the selected text only. My code below:
Private Sub CopyToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles CopyToolStripMenuItem.Click Dim activeChild As Form = Me.ActiveMdiChild ' Determine the active child form. Dim activeControl As Control = activeChild.ActiveControl
I'd like to ask if anyone knows how to properly use the clipboard to take information from a rich text box and send it to the clipboard. You see, if I try the following, which is pulling text from a rich text box, named RichTextBox2:
