Call this function to specify a format in which data is offered during data transfer operations.
The Clipboard format in which the data is to be offered. This parameter can be one of the predefined Clipboard formats or the value returned by the native Windows RegisterClipboardFormat function.
Points to a FORMATETC structure describing the format in which the data is to be offered. Provide a value for this parameter if you want to specify additional format information beyond the Clipboard format specified by cfFormat. If it is NULL, default values are used for the other fields in the FORMATETC structure.
Use this function if you are not going to supply your data through a CFile object. If you are going to supply the data through a CFile object, call the DelayRenderFileData member function. For more information on delayed rendering as handled by MFC, see the article Data Objects and Data Sources: Manipulation.
