Copy DataTable Entries to Clipboard

Hello everyone,

 

I'm in the process of creating an Application that processes Data and inserts it into a DataTable.

Now the users would like to be able to copy certain entries (e.g. UserID) from the DataTable and paste them somewhere else. (e.g. another program)

Unfortunately I feel like this is not possible since I can't highlight/ select + copy anything inside the DataTable like I could with a label for example.

 

Am I missing something here or is this just not possible at all?

 

Thanks

It's not possible today to copy that control to the clipboard.

There is an idea on the idea board that you might want to vote for...status says it's under review - 2 years ago.

 

In the meantime, you might be able, depending on the contents of the datatable, to create a textbox or html text control from that datatable.  From that you could copy and paste.

 

I hope this is meaningful and helpful for you.
