Clipboard Format Spy Publisher's description
from Peter Johnson
A useful tool for viewing the information about the format of your clipboard's contents
Clipboard Format Spy program displays the formats currently recorded on the clipboard. It automatically updates the information displayed as the contents of the clipboard change. For certain supported formats you can also view the clipboard contents. The contents of the clipboard can be deleted.
For each format displayed on the clipboard, the following information is displayed in the main window (see screenshot 1).
* Code вЂ“ this is the identifier used to represent the clipboard format. It is displayed in hexadecimal.
* Description вЂ“ this is the description of the clipboard format. Symbolic constants are displayed for the Windows standard clipboard formats.
* Size вЂ“ this is the size of the data on the clipboard. No value is displayed if the clipboard contents are not stored in global memory. The display can be sorted in ascending or descending order on any column.
Clipboard formats can be viewed by selecting the required format in the main display and right-clicking to display a pop-up menu. Select the required viewer from the menu. If the format can't be viewed "no viewer" will be displayed in the menu. Example viewers are shown in screenshots 2 to 5.
The file name of the process that owns the clipboard is displayed in the status bar.
