ChangeClipboardChain info  Overview  Group

The ChangeClipboardChain function removes a specified window from the chain of clipboard viewers.

BOOL ChangeClipboardChain(

    HWND hWndRemove,

// handle to window to remove

    HWND hWndNewNext 

// handle to next window



Identifies the window to be removed from the chain. The handle must have been passed to the SetClipboardViewer function.
Identifies the window that follows the hWndRemove window in the clipboard viewer chain. (This is the handle returned by SetClipboardViewer, unless the sequence was changed in response to a WM_CHANGECBCHAIN message.)

Return Values

The return value indicates the result of passing the WM_CHANGECBCHAIN message to the windows in the clipboard viewer chain. Because a window in the chain typically returns FALSE when it processes WM_CHANGECBCHAIN, the return value from ChangeClipboardChain is typically FALSE. If there is only one window in the chain, the return value is typically TRUE.


The window identified by hWndNewNext replaces the hWndRemove window in the chain. The SetClipboardViewer function sends a WM_CHANGECBCHAIN message to the first window in the clipboard viewer chain.
