Copying Text from CHtmlCtrl

Does anyone know of a way to copy selected text from a CHtmlCtrl window, and store it in memory and/or copy it to a text edit window?   Any help would be appriciated.

RE: Copying Text from CHtmlCtrl

I haven't worked with CHtmlCtrl and I am not sure how exactly it is implemented but I've successfully used the SendMessage API function. All you have to do is write something like this: SendMessage(win_handle, WM_COPY, 0, 0) and you should have your text copied in clipboard. win_handle must be m_hWnd or of that kind. I am not pretty sure but just give it a try. Hope this helps.
