This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I have a text field that I want to support the ^C and ^V conventions for copy and paste. The problem is that I get *two* copies of whatever was in the clipboard. The code is so simple that I would think there's not much to go wrong. But clearly I'm wrong... Anyway, the JVM is 1.6.0_18 on a Linux box.
Okay, thanks...? I'll have to try on different versions/platforms. I'm getting inconsistent behaviors and reports from some users that it doesn't work. (Perhaps an older JDK behaves differently...) Still, thanks for the (humorous!) reply.
