BitmapData.SaveToClipboard Method

Saves the bitmap into the clipboard.

Namespace: Aurigma.GraphicsMill
Assembly: Aurigma.GraphicsMill (in Aurigma.GraphicsMill.dll)


Visual Basic
Public Sub SaveToClipboard
public void SaveToClipboard()


To load the bitmap from the clipboard, use the LoadFromClipboard() method of the Bitmap class.


The copy of the bitmap is converted into the format which is supported by Windows so that other applications (e.g. MS PaintBrush) could load it. It means that if the bitmap has some non-standard pixel format (e.g. CMYK), it is automatically converted to 24-bit RGB. Therefore when you load the bitmap back from buffer using LoadFromClipboard() method, it may have another pixel format.
