Describes the properties of a file that is being copied by means of the clipboard during an OLE drag and drop operation.

typedef struct _FILEDESCRIPTOR { // fod 

    DWORD    dwFlags;          // see below 

    CLSID    clsid;            // file class identifier 

    SIZEL    sizel;            // width and height of file icon 

    POINTL   pointl;           // screen coordinates of file object 

    DWORD    dwFileAttributes; // file attribute flags (FILE_ATTRIBUTE_) 

    FILETIME ftCreationTime;   // time of file creation 

    FILETIME ftLastAccessTime; // time of last access to file 

    FILETIME ftLastWriteTime;  // time of last write operation 

    DWORD    nFileSizeHigh;    // high-order word of file size, in bytes 

    DWORD    nFileSizeLow;     // low-order word of file size, in bytes 

    CHAR     cFileName[ MAX_PATH ]; // name of file (null-terminated) 




Array of flags that indicate which of the other structure members contain valid data. This member can be a combination of these values:


The ftLastAccessTime member is valid.


The dwFileAttributes member is valid.


The clsid member is valid.


The ftCreationTime member is valid.


The nFileSizeHigh and nFileSizeLow members are valid.


Treat the operation as “Link.”


The sizel and pointl members are valid.


The ftLastWriteTime member is valid.
