to the existing posts on this newsgroup I came to know that I need to use and clipboard. I have implemented it in my code and I
am able to copy/paste my GEF image between eclipse applications, however,
in windows applications paste button does not get enabled.

I am using the available at mples/src/org/eclipse/swt/examples/dnd/

My Code looks as follows

IFigure figure = getMyFigure();
int w = figure.getSize().width;
int h = figure.getSize().height;
Image image = new Image(Display.getDefault(), w, h);
GC gc = new GC(image);
SWTGraphics graphics = new SWTGraphics(gc);
ImageData data = image.getImageData();
Clipboard clipboard = new Clipboard(Display.getDefault());
try {
clipboard.setContents(new ImageData[] { data }, new Transfer[] {
ImageTransfer.getInstance() });
} finally {

Any help is greatly appreciated.
