Remarks

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.

Members

Member name Description
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 EmfTypeEmfPlusDual 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.
