3.1.5.4.1 Sending a Format Data Request PDU

The fields of the Format Data Request PDU are specified in section 2.2.5.1.

The Clipboard Format ID of the clipboard data MUST be specified in the requestedFormatId field.

  • If Palette data is being requested, the requestedFormatId field MUST be set to 9.

  • If Metafile data is being requested, the requestedFormatId field MUST be set to 3.

  • If a File List is being requested, the Clipboard Format ID Map MUST be used to map the local Clipboard Format ID for the "FileGroupDescriptorW" Clipboard Format name to the remote Clipboard Format ID. The requestedFormatId field MUST then be populated with that value.

For all other formats the Clipboard Format ID Map MUST be used to map the local Clipboard Format ID of the requested clipboard data to the equivalent value on the remote system and then the requestedFormatId field MUST be populated with that value.
