Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals||Indicates whether this instance and a specified object are equal. (Inherited from ValueType.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns the fully qualified type name of this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)|
|cfFormat||Specifies the particular clipboard format of interest.|
|dwAspect||Specifies one of the DVASPECT enumeration constants that indicates how much detail should be contained in the rendering.|
|lindex||Specifies part of the aspect when the data must be split across page boundaries.|
|ptd||Specifies a pointer to a DVTARGETDEVICE structure containing information about the target device that the data is being composed for.|
|tymed||Specifies one of the TYMED enumeration constants, which indicates the type of storage medium used to transfer the object's data.|
The structure encompass a target device, the aspect or view of the data, and a storage medium indicator. Instead of a Clipboard format, OLE uses a FORMATETC data structure instead. This structure is used as a parameter in OLE functions and methods that require data format information.
For more information about the FORMATETC structure, see the MSDN Library.
The common language runtime throws an exception when a COM method in native code returns an HRESULT. For more information, see How to: Map HRESULTs and Exceptions.
