NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubfieldcfFormat

System_CAPS_pubfielddwAspect

System_CAPS_pubfieldlindex

Specifies part of the aspect when the data must be split across page boundaries.

System_CAPS_pubfieldptd

Specifies a pointer to a DVTARGETDEVICE structure containing information about the target device that the data is being composed for.

System_CAPS_pubfieldtymed

Specifies one of the TYMED enumeration constants, which indicates the type of storage medium used to transfer the object's data.

The FORMATETC 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.
