This Sample demonstrates how to monitor Windows clipboard changes in a WPF application. In order to be notified by the system when the clipboard content changes, an application must use the SetClipboardViewer function (user32.dll) to add its window into the chain of clipboard viewers. Clipboard viewer windows receive a WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD message whenever the content of the clipboard changes. And the WM_CHANGECBCHAIN message is sent to the first window in the clipboard viewer chain when a window is being removed from the chain. In a WPF application, we use HwndSource class to register a Win32 window message handler to process the messages. This sample also shows a workaround for a known issue in WPF Clipboard.GetImage() method.
