You cannot use constructors in XAML.


Type: System.Object

An object that represents the data to store in this data object.


data is null.


data references a DataObject object.

The following example creates a new data object and uses this constructor to initialize the data object with a string. In this case, an appropriate data format is determined automatically according to the stored data's type, and auto-converting of the stored data is allowed by default.

string stringData = "Some string data to store...";
DataObject dataObject = new DataObject(stringData);

The following example is a condensed version of the previous example.

DataObject dataObject = new DataObject("Some string data to store...");

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
