A string denoting the DIB data format: "DeviceIndependentBitmap".

DIB is a file format designed to ensure that bitmapped graphics created using one application can be loaded and displayed in another application exactly the way they appeared in the originating application.

This field is used by the DataObject class and other classes that implement the IDataObject interface to describe an available data format.

Use this field with the SetData method to add data with a corresponding format to a data object; use this field with the GetData method to retrieve data in the corresponding format. To check whether a data object contains data in this format, use the GetDataPresent method to query for the format.
