Uneditable DDDW

Uneditable DDDW

How do I make a DDDW that is uneditable, yet the user can still use the
mouse to select the text if they care to Copy it.

If I set the DDDW to not Allow Editing, it does not let the user type
in any values, but it still lets the user select a value from the drop
down list (which seems kinda wierd to me).

If I set the DDDW to Protect = 1, I cant even put the cursor in the
DDDW any more, thus preventing Copying of text.

Wheres the happy medium?

Add a little bity indicator to the right of the dddw to indicate copy, and
when the user clicks it you program it to get the stuff and put it in the
copy buffer. I'ts hard for me to imagine that there would be that much text
in a dddw that you might copy it, have many times in your life have you
copied text from a disabled select?
