Field Value

Type: System.String
A string denoting the Windows symbolic link data format: "SymbolicLink".

A symbolic link is a disk directory entry that takes the place of a directory entry for a file, but is actually a reference to a file in a different directory. A symbolic link may also be referred to an alias, shortcut, soft link, or symlink.

This field is used by the DataObject class and other classes that implement the IDataObject interface to describe an available data format.

Use this field with the SetData method to add data with a corresponding format to a data object; use this field with the GetData method to retrieve data in the corresponding format. To check whether a data object contains data in this format, use the GetDataPresent method to query for the format.
