Microsoft introduces Copy and Paste feature to Windows Phone Developer Tools

The most anticipated feature of Windows Phone 7, Copy and paste is now enabled on Windows Phone 7 in the following controls:

System.Windows.Controls.TextBox
System.Windows.Controls.PasswordBox
Text input fields within the Microsoft.Phone.Controls.WebBrowser control.

Developers can test the copy and paste functionality in the new Windows Phone Emulator.

Also included in the Windows Phone Developer Tools January 2011 Update for developers are;

WP Capability Detection Tool – Performs a code analysis to detect the phone capabilities required by your application and then generate the list of capabilities to test it, same as Microsoft does during the certification process.

WP Connect Tool – Allows you to connect your phone to a PC when Zune software is not running and debug applications that use media APIs.

Updated Bing Maps Silverlight Control – Includes improvements to gesture performance when using Bing Maps Silverlight Control.

End users can use the copy and paste functionality only after receiving the corresponding update to the Windows Phone 7 operating system. Most applications already published to the Windows Phone Marketplace do not need to be recompiled to take advantage of copy and paste functionality. Copy and paste will work automatically for end users after they receive the corresponding update to the operating system.

The updates as well as release notes are available and can be downloaded from Microsoft Download Centre.

Thanks.
