[FlagsAttribute]
public enum InkClipboardFormats

Member nameDescription
NoneSpecifies a flag that can be used to verify whether any formats are present by checking against it.
InkSerializedFormatSpecifies ink is encoded in Ink Serialized Format (ISF). This is the most compact persistent representation of ink. Although it often contains only ink data, Ink Serialized Format (ISF) is extensible. Applications can set custom attributes (identified by a globally unique identifier (GUID)) on an Ink object, stroke, or point. This allows an application to store any kind of data or metadata it requires as an attribute in an Ink Serialized Format (ISF) stream.
SketchInkSpecifies ink is not expected to form words, but rather is interpreted as a picture. This is also useful for representing multiple words.
TextInkSpecifies ink is expected to form words. It allows the ink to be converted to text. The recognized text is either the alternate with the greatest confidence rating or another alternate chosen from a list. This is useful for representing a single word.

This format includes the SketchInk format.

EnhancedMetafileSpecifies the enhanced metafile to play to create the background. The metafile must remain valid for as long as it is used to render the ink background.
MetafileSpecifies ink is stored as a metafile or a list of commands that can be played back to draw a graphic.
BitmapSpecifies the bitmap to use as the background. The bitmap device context must remain valid for as long as it is used to render the ink background.
PasteMaskSpecifies the formats that can be used for pasting.

This format includes the TextInk, SketchInk, and InkSerializedFormat formats.

CopyMaskSpecifies the formats that are copied to the Clipboard through ink.
DefaultThe CopyMask format.
