type EmfType

Member nameDescription
EmfOnly

Specifies that all the records in the metafile are EMF records, which can be displayed by GDI or GDI+.

EmfPlusDual

Specifies that all EMF+ records in the metafile are associated with an alternate EMF record. Metafiles of type EmfPlusDual can be displayed by GDI or by GDI+.

EmfPlusOnly

Specifies that all the records in the metafile are EMF+ records, which can be displayed by GDI+ but not by GDI.

GDI+ uses the enhanced Windows metafile image format (EMF). The EMF format contains a comment mechanism for embedding data within the metafile. This comment mechanism is used to embed GDI+ records within an EMF file. EMF files that contain GDI+ data are called EMF+ files. Applications that do not recognize the comment data skip the comment records and render the records they do understand. If the EMF+ file is played back by GDI+, then the GDI+ records are used to render the metafile; otherwise, the GDI records (if present) are used.
