Looks nifty!

If I may make a few suggestions about the visual layout of the dialog:

1. The barrier between the "Code" and "Expiry" options is not clearly
visible.  I'd suggest using comboboxes instead so it's obvious which
control belongs to which label.

2. You don't need to mark radio buttons (or comboboxes) as "required"
-- just set one value active by default and the user will be unable to
deselect them.  The "required" markers are unnecessary visual noise,

// Untested, but should work according to the docs.
Clipboard clipboard = Clipboard.Get(Gdk.Atom.Intern("CLIPBOARD", false));
