Examples

The following code example shows how to retrieve a DataFormats.Format representing a format name/ID pair. The UnicodeText format is requested, and the contents of the retrieved DataFormats.Format are displayed in a text box.

This code requires that textBox1 has been created.

private:
   void GetMyFormatInfomation()
   {
      // Creates a DataFormats.Format for the Unicode data format.
      DataFormats::Format^ myFormat = DataFormats::GetFormat(
         DataFormats::UnicodeText );
      
      // Displays the contents of myFormat.
      textBox1->Text = String::Format( "ID value: {0}\nFormat name: {1}",
         myFormat->Id, myFormat->Name );
   }
private void GetMyFormatInfomation() {
   // Creates a DataFormats.Format for the Unicode data format.
   DataFormats.Format myFormat = DataFormats.GetFormat(DataFormats.UnicodeText);

   // Displays the contents of myFormat.
   textBox1.Text = "ID value: " + myFormat.Id + '\n' +
      "Format name: " + myFormat.Name;
}

Private Sub GetMyFormatInfomation()
    ' Creates a DataFormats.Format for the Unicode data format.
    Dim myFormat As DataFormats.Format = _
       DataFormats.GetFormat(DataFormats.UnicodeText)
       
    ' Displays the contents of myFormat.
    textBox1.Text = "ID value: " + myFormat.Id.ToString() + ControlChars.Cr _
                  + "Format name: " + myFormat.Name
End Sub
