I'm trying to paste a URL into my app but, TextInput and EditBox don't seem to accept what is in the Clip Board.

Unfortunately, last time I checked the system clipboard is not supported.

Even if it wasn't directly supported in the TextInput and EditBox controls, at the very least it would be nice to have a few commands that give direct access and then you could roll your own Copy and Paste keyboard actions.

I know someone will suggest Tier 2, but it would still be wonderful if the clipboard was supported in Tier 1 on the appropriate platforms.

It would be possible for somebody to create a plugin to do this.
You would then need to code the detection of <CTRL>-V

Thank you PartTimeCoder.

I have not yet made the time to check out the plugin system, your small, but very useful clipboard DLL is a great example of the potential.

Cheers,
Scott.
