NSPasteboardMBS.NSPICTPboardType as string
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
shared method Clipboard MBS MacBase Plugin 10.4 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: One of the common pasteboard data types.
Notes:
QuickDraw picture data.
The PICT format was formally deprecated in Mac OS X v10.4 along with QuickDraw. You should not be explicitly providing or looking for PICT data on the pasteboard.
To aid in this deprecation, if PICT is the only image type on the pasteboard, as is sometimes the case when copying images from 32-bit Carbon applications, a translated image type will be automatically reported and provided by NSPasteboard. The translated type is added to the types array ahead of PICT so that the deprecated PICT format is not the preferred format. In addition, when an application provides image data to NSPasteboard, the Carbon Pasteboard Manager will automatically make a PICT translation available to 32-bit Carbon applications.
Although NSPICTPboardType, and its UTI equivalent kUTTypePICT, will appear in a pasteboard's type array retrieved from the existing NSPasteboard API, it may cease to be reported in future releases.
