Paste Special Dialog

The Paste Special dialog allows end-users to paste data from the Clipboard into a document in the selected format.

In the dialog, end-users can select the format for data contained in the Clipboard and paste them into the document as if that data is imported from the specified format. For example, data copied from the Microsoft® Word® 2007 can be pasted as a RTF, HTML, metafile or plain (unformatted) text. Available formats are determined by the Clipboard, so you cannot modify the list of formats displayed in this form.

You can provide end-users with the capability to invoke the Paste Special dialog via the Clipboard toolbar or Ribbon page group. To do this, provide Bars or Ribbon UI for RichEditControl (see How to: Create a Simple Word Processor with a Bar UI or How to: Create a Simple Word Processor with a Ribbon UI), and create the Clipboard toolbar or Ribbon page group from the Home group of bars.

To invoke the dialog, use the ShowPasteSpecialFormCommand command.

To customize the default Paste Special dialog or substitute it with new dialog, handle the RichEditControl.PasteSpecialFormShowing event. To get an example of the dialog replacement, refer to the How to: Customize the Search Form or How to: Customize the Hyperlink Form document.
