The following is an example of how to copy and paste...
I have also noticed that the JTextComponent package has methods for cut, copy, and paste. What is the difference between the two? Why would I want to add all of the above code if I can just call the cut() method on my JTextField? I'm a bit Still new at this. Thanks in advance!!

I just use the cut(), copy(), paste() provided by Java in a couple of my apps and have never had any problems with the method. I personally wouldn't bother using all that other code! regards, Ben.

Thanks for the reply! Now, since I know I can use the methods provided, I have another question. I have an application with numerous JTextFields. How do I tell it I want to paste the contents of the clipboard to a certain Field? I can call a paste method on all of the fields, but then the text goes into all of the fields. I guess I need to know how to condition the paste method to put the copied text in a certain place. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!!
