Copy to Clipboard problem ?

P: 1
I'm trying to copy to the clipboard a text that is read from the serial port, but when try to use:

Clipboard.SetText(MyTexo,MyText Format)

give me the follow error:

Current thread must be set to single thread apartment (STA) mode before OLE calls can be made. Ensure that your Main function has STAThreadAttribute marked on it.

Im using VB.Net 2008 and is a single form program. What could be wrong.

"Using single-threaded apartments (the apartment model process) offers a message-based paradigm for dealing with multiple objects running concurrently. It enables you to write more efficient code by allowing a thread, while it waits for some time-consuming operation to complete, to allow another thread to be executed."
For more information see what MSDN has to say about Single-Threaded Apartments.

Have you tried marking the main function with the STAThreadAttribute?
