Retrieves a data object containing the current contents of the embedded object
on which this method is called. Using the pointer to this data object, it is
possible to create a new embedded object with the same data as the original.

[out] Points to an interface pointer to the data object. If an error is
returned, this parameter must be set to NULL. Each time an object receives a call to GetClipboardData
, it must increase the reference count on the pointer that the method returns.

is not supported.
The object is not running.
You can use the GetClipboardData
method to convert a linked object to an embedded object, in which case the
container application would call IOleObject::GetClipboardData
and then pass the data received to OleCreateFromData
. This method returns a pointer to a data object that is identical to what
would have been passed to the Clipboard by a standard copy operation.
Notes to Callers
If you want a stable snapshot of the current contents of an embedded object,
. Should the data change, you will need to call the function again for an
updated snapshot. If you want the caller to be informed of changes that occur to
the data, call IDataObject::QueryInterface
, then call IDataObject::DAdvise
Notes to Implementors
If you implement this function, you must return an IDataObject
pointer for an object whose data will not change.
