IDataObject.GetDataPresent Method (Type)
Determines whether data stored in this instance is associated with, or can be converted to, the specified format.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
Return ValueType: System.Boolean
true if data stored in this instance is associated with, or can be converted to, the specified format; otherwise, false.
Data can be converted to another format if it was stored specifying that conversion is allowed, and if the requested format is compatible with the stored format. For example, data stored as Unicode can be converted to text.
For an implementation of this method, see DataObject.GetDataPresent.
This example uses the DataObject class, which implements IDataObject, to demonstrate the use of the GetDataPresent method. First, it creates a component (myComponent) and stores it in a data object (myDataObject). Then it checks whether the specified data is stored in myDataObject. If the test evaluates true, it displays the result in a message box and displays the data type in a text box. This example assumes that you have already created a Form named Form1 and a TextBox named textBox1.
