      mentioned in the link given by Stefan, but for textbox "written by Janet
      Terra ".
      The content
      of textbox of the code accept copy and paste..
      Is it possible to
      replace the textbox with listbox with keeping acceptance of copy and paste?

          text1$ = "STYLEBITS allows you to change the style of a Liberty BASIC window or control."
          text2$ = "Add to or edit this text."

          Textbox #Main.txtbx, 0, 0, 190, 68

      A listbox isn't designed for that. You could use the hidden textbox trick to receive the list and update the listbox array but it is a pretty convoluted way to populate a list. Perhaps if you described the task and gave sample data folks might offer alternative solutions.

The drawback is that, if you want to end a paragraph and begin a new one, the Enter key isn't recognized. Everyone else in the world probably already knows this, but for those who don't, I discovered by accident that Ctrl-Enter works. Not the best solution for things you distribute for others to use, but in the instances I use it, I'm the only user.
