METAFILEPICT structure

Defines the metafile picture format used for exchanging metafile data through the clipboard.

Syntax


typedef struct tagMETAFILEPICT {
  LONG      mm;
  LONG      xExt;
  LONG      yExt;
  HMETAFILE hMF;
} METAFILEPICT, *LPMETAFILEPICT;

Members

mm

Type: LONG

The mapping mode in which the picture is drawn.

xExt

Type: LONG

The size of the metafile picture for all modes except the MM_ISOTROPIC and MM_ANISOTROPIC modes. (For more information about these modes, see the yExt member.) The x-extent specifies the width of the rectangle within which the picture is drawn. The coordinates are in units that correspond to the mapping mode.

yExt

Type: LONG

The size of the metafile picture for all modes except the MM_ISOTROPIC and MM_ANISOTROPIC modes. The y-extent specifies the height of the rectangle within which the picture is drawn. The coordinates are in units that correspond to the mapping mode. For MM_ISOTROPIC and MM_ANISOTROPIC modes, which can be scaled, the xExt and yExt members contain an optional suggested size in MM_HIMETRIC units. For MM_ANISOTROPIC pictures, xExt and yExt can be zero when no suggested size is supplied. For MM_ISOTROPIC pictures, an aspect ratio must be supplied even when no suggested size is given. (If a suggested size is given, the aspect ratio is implied by the size.) To give an aspect ratio without implying a suggested size, set xExt and yExt to negative values whose ratio is the appropriate aspect ratio. The magnitude of the negative xExt and yExt values is ignored; only the ratio is used.

hMF

Type: HMETAFILE

A handle to a memory metafile.
