clipboard-format-from-object

Arguments: object

Returns a keyword symbol that indicates which clipboard format of the underlying platform's system-wide clipboard is suitable for the specified data object. The returned value may be useful for passing to push-lisp-clipboard or (setf clipboard-object).

The default methods return :pixmap for a pixmap and :text for anything else. The other possible format, :rich-text, is never returned because that would require parsing a string to see if it is a valid rich text string, and guessing that it is intended to be pasted as one.

See cg-clipboard.htm.
