DataObject Constructor (Object)

Initializes a new instance of the DataObject class that contains the specified data.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public DataObject(
	Object data
)

Parameters

data
Type: System.Object
An object that represents the data to store in this data object.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

data is null.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

data references a DataObject object.

The following example creates a new data object and uses this constructor to initialize the data object with a string. In this case, an appropriate data format is determined automatically according to the stored data's type, and auto-converting of the stored data is allowed by default.


string stringData = "Some string data to store...";
DataObject dataObject = new DataObject(stringData);


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


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