Clipboard to copy Treenode

I am using the clipboard to copy and paste a TreeNode but the Tag property
does not seem to be copied.
I use the Tag property for an Object that contains data relating to the
TreeNode. The Tag property is fine when the TreeNode is put onto the
Clipboard but the Tag property is always 'nothing' when I take the TreeNode
from the Clipboard.

Private Sub PutNodeOnClipbo ard(ByVal thisNode As TreeNode)
Dim thisDataObject As New DataObject
thisDataObject. SetData(myForma t.Name, thisNode)
Clipboard.SetDa taObject(thisDa taObject)
End Sub

Private Sub MIEdit_Paste_Cl ick(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArg s) _
Handles MIEdit_Paste.Cl ick
Dim myClipData As IDataObject = Clipboard.GetDa taObject()
If myClipData.GetD ataPresent(myFo rmat.Name) Then
Dim NodeFromClip As TreeNode = _
CType(myClipDat a.GetData(myFor mat.Name, True), TreeNode)
....
This last line of code takes the TreeNode from the clipboard and all the
properties seem fine except the Tag property.
What do I need to do to ensure the Tag property follows the TreeNode via
Clipboard.

Thanks
Fred

I have a menu item to handle clipboard actions (cut, copy, paste). When I paste text that I copied from a Hungarian web page, the display looks normal on my RichTextBox, but the text retrieved from the clipboard is corrupted. For example, a U with double accent ( byte code x'FB' ) is replaced by a question mark in my txtEdit.Text after a Paste operation. It seems that the Clipboard.GetText() is changing the data. How is it possible to...

Just have a question with regards to the clipboard, and how to read what other applications (Adobe InDesignCS) place in the clipboard.

At the current point in time, I am copy/pasting the raw text from the database into a table layout in InDesign. What I was thinking is that if I could...

Hello, First, I appologize for the length but I want to get all the facts down so as not to waste any time :) I'm trying to allow the user of my C# app to copy a DataGrid full of double values to the clipboard (via ctrl-C, edit->copy, etc). They can then paste these values wherever (but in particular, excel). I've searched the web fairly exhaustively and cannot find an answer to this. Every time someone asks, somone answers with the...

Hi Gang, I don't know what to make of all of this, but I'm having nothing, but trouble copying data to the clipboard which should be the easiest thing in the world. The only systems I can get this to not crash on is my development system w/ VB 2003 installed and Windows NT 4. My development system is Windows 2000 Pro, but if I try using the clipboard on Win2K Pro system that doesn't have VB 2003 installed it'll crash. The only...

Hello All, I¡¯m using a context menu associated with some pictureboxes to provide copy/paste functionality. Copying the image to the clipboard was easy. But pasting an image from the clipboard is proving to be more difficult. These pictureboxes are bound to an AccessDB. If the user wants to add an image, they select an image using an OpenFileDialog: Dim result As DialogResult = Pic_Sel.ShowDialog() If (result = DialogResult.OK) Then

Wow.....this is darned odd.... I have an app that integrates with other applications. It registers a global hotkey with Windows. When the hotkey executes it sends a CTRL-C to the active window (any application) to copy whatever text is selected to the clipboard. It then issues a C# Clipboard.GetText(...) and does some processing with this string. All is good, no errors thus far.

Seasons Greetings Everyone! I want to use JavaScript's event object to detect whether someone has pressed the 'PrintScreen' key to screenshot, via the Windows Clipboard, and to print website content I don't want printed... It occurred to me that the easiest way to do this is to erase or replace the contents of the Windows Clipboard... Some code snippets I found at webdeveloper.com forums:

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
