Provides a format-independent mechanism for transferring data.
Assembly: PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
The interface is used by the Clipboard class for data transfer operations like drag-and-drop.
When implemented by a class, the methods enable a single data object to offer data in multiple formats. Offering data in multiple formats tends to make the data usable by a wider variety of applications than if only a single data format were supported.
The DataObject class provides a basic implementation of the interface.
