IDataObject.GetDataPresent Method (String)
Determines whether data stored in this instance is associated with, or can be converted to, the specified format.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
Return ValueType: System.Boolean
true if data stored in this instance is associated with, or can be converted to, the specified format; otherwise false.
Data can be converted to another format if it was stored specifying that conversion is allowed, and if the requested format is compatible with the stored format. For example, data stored as Unicode can be converted to text.
For an implementation of this method, see DataObject.GetDataPresent.
This example uses the DataObject class, which implements IDataObject, to demonstrate the use of the GetDataPresent method. First, it creates a data object using a string and the Text format. Then it verifies that the data is present in the Text format and displays the results in a message box. The example assumes that you have created a Form named Form1.
