I stated that in the beginning, and asked if anyone had any  
suggestions on what to do in that case. If you completely arbitrarily  
hightlight cells, there really isn't a way to store them in the  
clipboard. Because no one had any suggestions on how to handle it,  
yourself included, the decision was made to just copy the first group  
of cells highlighted.

Users dont care about virtual controls or not. Users care about basic  
functionality like being able to copy subsets of data into the  
clipboard. Only behing able to copy entire rows at a time is a half  
brewn implementation. It would have been much easier for you to  
refactor things into a virtual table than to do this, and it would've  
made everyone happy.

Also, you're forgetting that the only reason I didn't implement code  
similar to this originally is because you were rather insistant that  
the data retrieval code should not be changed in any way. It's not  
exactly reasonable to place restrictions on other people's work simply  
so that you can later complain that the work isn't good enough and  
have an excuse to rip it out.
