This API supports the product 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

public Format(
	string name,
	int id


Type: System.String

The name of this format.

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;
