GetFormat method (Microsoft Forms)

Returns an integer value indicating whether a specific format is on the DataObject.


Boolean = object. GetFormat(format)

The GetFormat method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Required. A valid object.
format Required. An integer or string specifying a specific format that might exist in the DataObject. If the specified format exists in the DataObject, GetFormat returns True.


The settings for format are:

Value Description

A string or any integer other than 1 A user-defined DataObject format passed to the DataObject from SetText.


The GetFormat method searches for a format in the current list of formats on the DataObject. If the format is on the DataObject, GetFormat returns True; if not, GetFormat returns False.

The DataObject currently supports only text formats.
