You didn't provide any version info, so its hard to answer your question. If you are on Forms 10G or 11G you could write a javabean to intersect the paste-event.
Thanks for the response. Am using 10g. do u have any link for me to verify the code to write using javabean. I will check in online.
For what purpose you asked this facility?
If you need this option for 'password protection' then conceal_data property is the soluton.

It sounds like you want a to write a PJC component to extend a forms text item that will capture and eliminate the key strokes and mouse actions used to copy and past thus preventing a user from performing this action. There are many examples on the interent of how this can be written e.g. the Oracle Forms PJCs/Java Beans web site. You will need to have jdeveloper to write thise bit of code. Oracle forms also has a tutorial on how to plug the JAR file you generate into your for sessions.
