2.3.6.1 META_ESCAPE Record

The META_ESCAPE Record specifies extensions to WMF functionality that are not directly available through other records defined in the RecordType Enumeration (section 2.1.1.1). The MetafileEscapes Enumeration (section 2.1.1.17) lists these extensions.

RecordSize

RecordFunction

EscapeFunction

ByteCount

EscapeData (variable)

...

RecordSize (4 bytes): A 32-bit unsigned integer that defines the number of WORD structures, defined in [MS-DTYP] section 2.2.61, in the record.

RecordFunction (2 bytes): A 16-bit unsigned integer that defines this record type. The lower byte MUST match the lower byte of the RecordType Enumeration table value META_ESCAPE.

EscapeFunction (2 bytes): A 16-bit unsigned integer that defines the escape function. The value MUST be from the MetafileEscapes Enumeration.

ByteCount (2 bytes): A 16-bit unsigned integer that specifies the size, in bytes, of the EscapeData field.

EscapeData (variable): An array of bytes of size ByteCount.

Every META_ESCAPE MUST include a MetafileEscapes function specifier, followed by arbitrary data. The data SHOULD NOT contain position-specific data that assumes the location of a particular record within the metafile, because one metafile might be embedded within another.

See section 2.3.6 for the specification of other Escape Record Types.
