    Have a RadListbox, in xaml have set (SelectionMode="Multiple").

    Want the user able to copy a selected item(s) and paste it anywhere (text file, excel, etc.) having issue finding topics in forum that helps me complete the operation of "copy".

    Is there a method to do this?

    Hello Herb,

    RadListBox doesn't provide a built-in clipboard support. To achieve your requirement, you can subscribe to the KeyDown event of the listbox and implement a custom copy/paste logic that saves and loads data from the clipboard.

    private void RadListBox_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
    	var selectedItems = this.listBox.SelectedItems;
    	if (Keyboard.Modifiers == ModifierKeys.Control && e.Key == Key.C)
    		// implement a copy logic that saves the selected items in the clipboard                
    	else if (Keyboard.Modifiers == ModifierKeys.Control && e.Key == Key.V)
    		// implement a paste logic that loads the data from the clipboard
    	// you can use the Clipboard class to implement copy/paste operations
    	// https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.windows.clipboard?view=netframework-4.8

    I hope this helps.
