The Clipboard

The Clipboard refers to what the user views as residing in the scrap. Your application can provide a Show Clipboard/Hide Clipboard command to show or hide a window, referred to as the Clipboard window. When the user chooses this command, your application should display in its Clipboard window the current contents of the scrap. Although multiple scrap format types may reside in the scrap, applications that support a Clipboard window typically display the data in only one format.

If your application provides this command, your application should hide its Clipboard window (if it's showing) whenever it receives a suspend event. It can show the Clipboard window again when it receives a resume event.
