Does anybody know whether it is possible to prevent users from using CTRL+V (paste) in a specific form and if - how to do?

Thanks in advance

    There exists a property PasteIsValid on table-level which can be set to false. Don't think it's available on form-level though.

    No, I don't think you can prevent this.

    The PastIsValid property Luc mentioned is available in a Table level only and applies to complete records, not individual fields.

    You could create a MenuButton and set ShortCutKey of an empty MenuItem to Ctrl+V. As long as this form is in focus it won't let you paste anything into this form.

    This solution does provide no more enforcement than just telling the user to not do it. It is just a minor obstacle.
    Have you ever heard about Shift+Ins or the right click context menu?
