The framework calls this member function when the Clipboard contains a data handle for the CF_OWNERDISPLAY format (that is, when the Clipboard owner will display the Clipboard contents).

afx_msg void OnAskCbFormatName( 
   UINT nMaxCount, 
   LPTSTR lpszString  


Specifies the maximum number of bytes to copy.


Points to the buffer where the copy of the format name is to be stored.

The Clipboard owner should provide a name for its format.

Override this member function and copy the name of the CF_OWNERDISPLAY format into the specified buffer, not exceeding the maximum number of bytes specified.

Note Note

This member function is called by the framework to allow your application to handle a Windows message. The parameters passed to your function reflect the parameters received by the framework when the message was received. If you call the base-class implementation of this function, that implementation will use the parameters originally passed with the message and not the parameters you supply to the function.
