A Vista change to the clipboard
« on: March 21, 2007, 12:53:00 PM »
FYI,
  Seeing as it is useful to know that there is a new method of receiving Clipboard events other than being in the Clipboard chain

  WM_CLIPBOARDUPDATE Notification
  http://msdn2.microso...ibrary/ms649021.aspx

  Although its a shame that something like this didn't simply get added into XP, what sort of operating system requires applications to maintain a pointer chain... sheesh

  This might be useful to know for ScreenShot Captor as well of course

An operating system that, unfortunately, carried some design (though not much code) from the 16bit days.
