Creating an Example Program
It's time to get down to business and create some programs that use the clipboard techniques discussed so far. The first program you'll build uses a private clipboard. It copies or cuts data from a TextField object in response to the Copy and Paste buttons. When the user clicks the Paste button, any text in the clipboard is transferred into the read-only TextField object.
Listing 11.2 shows you the source code. Take a look at it and then read the explanation that follows.
