IDataObject.QueryGetData(FORMATETC) IDataObject.QueryGetData(FORMATETC) IDataObject.QueryGetData(FORMATETC) IDataObject.QueryGetData(FORMATETC) Method

Definition

Retrieves a value indicating whether the implementer can render the data that is contained in the a parameter.

public:
 int QueryGetData(Microsoft::Aspnet::Snapin::FORMATETC a);
public int QueryGetData (Microsoft.Aspnet.Snapin.FORMATETC a);
abstract member QueryGetData : Microsoft.Aspnet.Snapin.FORMATETC -> int
Public Function QueryGetData (a As FORMATETC) As Integer

Parameters

a
FORMATETC FORMATETC FORMATETC FORMATETC

A pointer to the FORMATETC defining the format, medium, and target device for calls to retrieve data.

Returns

The QueryGetData method supports the standard return values E_INVALIDARG, E_UNEXPECTED, and E_OUTOFMEMORY, as well as the following return values:

Return value Description
S_OK A subsequent call to the GetData(FORMATETC, STGMEDIUM) method probably will be successful.
DV_E_LINDEX lindex is not valid.
DV_E_FORMATETC pFormatEtc is not valid.
DV_E_TYMED tymed is not valid.
DV_E_DVASPECT dwAspect value.
OLE_E_NOTRUNNING The object application is not running.

Remarks

A client of a data object that implements the IDataObject interface calls the QueryGetData method to determine the likelihood of success of a subsequent call to the GetData(FORMATETC, STGMEDIUM) method. A result indicating that this instance of the IDataObject interface can render the data that is contained in the a parameter does not guarantee success in a subsequent call to the GetData(FORMATETC, STGMEDIUM) method.
