Hi everybody,

if I copy data of the RadGridView into the clipboard I can paste it into an Excel sheet only as long as the source application (e.g. the demo application but also my own application) is running. Is there a way to keep the data in the clipboard after closing the application?

Regards Uli

Hello Uli,

 By default the system clears all the data from the application to reclaim memory and maximize performance. If you'd like to keep the data in the clipboard even after your application closes, you need to handle the Copied event in the following way:
var data = Clipboard.GetDataObject();
Clipboard.SetDataObject(data, true);
