FORMATETC Structure

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

Represents a generalized Clipboard format.

Namespace: System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComTypes
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public struct FORMATETC
public final class FORMATETC extends ValueType
JScript suports the use of structures, but not the declaration of new ones.

The FORMATETC structure encompass a target device, the aspect or view of the data, and a storage medium indicator. Instead of a Clipboard format, OLE uses a FORMATETC data structure instead. This structure is used as a parameter in OLE functions and methods that require data format information.

For more information about the FORMATETC structure, see the MSDN Library.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
