  • No. On the other hand, it's your application's responsibility to ask the clipboard whether it holds content in a format your program recognize. (The same clipboard data can be hold in a number of formats. For example your RTF copied data should also available in plain CF_TEXT format, or CF_UNICODETEXT if it supports Unicode)

    Just try ContainsData() with the format you knows that holds the most complex (therefore most complete) data then goes one by one to the rest.
