Field Value

Type: System::String^

A string denoting the XAML data format: "Xaml".

XAML is an XML-based language used to represent a tree of objects. Events generated by these objects can be handled using any Microsoft .NET programming language. In Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), XAML is typically used to describe user interfaces (UI), documents, and media experiences.

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.
