Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Returns a Boolean indicating whether the Clipboard contains a file drop list.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualBasic.MyServices
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic (in microsoft.visualbasic.dll)

public bool ContainsFileDropList ()
public boolean ContainsFileDropList ()
public function ContainsFileDropList () : boolean

Return Value

True if a file drop list is stored on the Clipboard; otherwise False.

For more detailed information, see the Visual Basic topic My.Computer.Clipboard.ContainsFileDropList Method.

A file drop list is a collection of strings containing path information for files.

This example determines if there is a file drop list on the Clipboard and adds the list to the ListBoxlstFiles if they exist.

If My.Computer.Clipboard.ContainsFileDropList Then
   Dim filelist As System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection
   filelist = My.Computer.Clipboard.GetFileDropList()
   For Each filePath As String In filelist
End If

This code will create an exception if there is no ListBox named lstFiles.
