Is it possible to copy text out of a data table?

I can't seem to highlight and copy text directly from a data table. Is this only possible by using a label that references the selected table data like in this code snippet?:

DataTable.Selected.City

If I can somehow copy directly from the table without having to use labels that would be ideal.

By copying, do you intend using the selected item in another screen, if so then use a Variable like:

 Set(SelectedItem.DataTable1.Selected.City) 

On OnSelect of a Button

No, since data in the table can't be directly copied, its mostly just to make it easier for the end user to copy their "active" selection.

I was hoping to just spit out the selected row into a string:

Can you give a clear Example?

Do you want to join columns on the DataTable in a Textbox?

I would like to join the selected row from from the DataTable into a textbox (Label1) in this case. With maybe a | to separate each part.
