Specifies the Windows metafile format, which Windows Forms does not directly use. This static field is read-only.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
The metafile format is a Windows file that stores an image in terms of graphic objects rather than pixels. When resized, a metafile preserves an image better than a bitmap.
Special considerations may be necessary when using the metafile format with the clipboard. Due to a limitation in the current implementation of the DataObject class, the metafile format used by the .NET Framework may not be recognized by applications that use an older metafile format. In this case, you must interoperate with the Win32 Clipboard application programming interfaces (APIs).
