You cannot use constructors in XAML.

Parameters

format
Type: System.String

A string that specifies the format for the data. For a set of predefined data formats, see the DataFormats class.

data
Type: System.Object

An object that represents the data to store in this data object.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

data or format is null.

The following example creates a new data object and uses this constructor to initialize the data object with a string and a specified data format. In this case, the data format is specified by a string; the DataFormats class provides a set of predefined type strings. Auto-converting of the stored data is allowed by default.

string stringData = "Some string data to store...";
string dataFormat = DataFormats.UnicodeText;
DataObject dataObject = new DataObject(dataFormat, stringData);

The following example is a condensed version of the previous example.

DataObject dataObject = new DataObject(DataFormats.UnicodeText, "Some string data to store...");

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
