public: System::Runtime::InteropServices::ComTypes::DVASPECT dwAspect;

val mutable dwAspect : System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComTypes.DVASPECT
Public dwAspect As DVASPECT 

Field Value


A single clipboard format can support multiple aspects or views of the object. Most data and presentation transfer and caching methods pass aspect information. For example, a caller might request an object's iconic picture, using the metafile clipboard format to retrieve it. Note that only one DVASPECT value can be used in dwAspect. That is, dwAspect cannot be the result of a BOOLEAN OR operation on several DVASPECT values.
