In this post we will see Clipboard API support in Windows Phone. Clipboard API support came as part of Windows Phone 7.5 and it was not part of Windows Phone 7.

Class is defined in System.Windows namespace as below,

You can set text as below,

In above snippet txtSource is a text box. You can check whether clipboard has some data or not as below,

One very important point you need to keep in mind that you cannot use GetText() method in Windows Phone. If you try to do that you will get security exception as below,

For security reason access to clipboard data is prohibited in Windows Phone. In this way you can use Windows Phone Clipboard API. I hope this post is useful. Thanks for reading .
