_ClipBoard_GetDataEx fails for some formats - why?

1 post in this topic

_ClipBoard_GetDataEx returns '0' for some formats and i don't know why

the formats in this instance are 49577 and 49756, which are in clipboard memory (if that's the right term) after copying an image in Firefox

the dll call for _ClipBoard_GetDataEx is:

DllCall("user32.dll", "handle", "GetClipboardData", "uint", $iFormat)

according to MSDN, i'm not seeing anything wrong with the dll call, so i guess my question is; how can _ClipBoard_GetDataEx fail (return 0) if the format is valid (and how could the format be in clipboard mem if it wasn't valid)?

is this something specific to binary formats perhaps?
