Is it currently possible to create a control that lets you paste from the clipboard? If so how? Thanks!

  • Not exactly but I’ve see an article online which describes some approaches using JS to achieve similar functionality maybe will help hackernoon.com/…

No. Modern browsers do not allow reading the clipboard for security purposes. They also don't allow copying to the clipboard unless triggered by a user action (e.g. onclick). See this site for details.
