DataFormats.Format Constructor

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Initializes a new instance of the DataFormats.Format class with a Boolean that indicates whether a Win32 handle is expected.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public Format(
	string name,
	int id
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String
The name of this format.
id
Type: System.Int32
The ID number for this format.

The following code example creates a new format for a name and unique ID number. The new format does not require a Windows handle. It requires that textBox1 has been instantiated.


private void CreateMyFormat2() {
    DataFormats.Format myFormat = new DataFormats.Format("AnotherNewFormat", 20916);

    // Displays the contents of myFormat.
    textBox1.Text = "ID value: " + myFormat.Id + '\n' +
       "Format name: " + myFormat.Name;
 }
