  • Question

  • Hi I've been reading and searching through postings on how to do this. I thought I found the solution here

    but I can't get the code to work.

    The issue I'm having. I need to copy selected text out of an application which uses IE to display the contents. Ideally, I'd like to select the text by highlighting it and press a button to capture the selection.

    I appreciate any help you can offer. I'm new to using Microsoft Visual Studio and Visual Basic.

    Thank you,

    Maxine
