procedure Open; virtual;
virtual void __fastcall Open();
Opens the clipboard, preventing other applications from changing its contents until the clipboard is closed.
Call Open before adding a series of items to the clipboard. This prevents other applications from overwriting the clipboard until it is closed. (When adding a single item to the clipboard, there is no need to call Open.)
When an application has finished adding items to the clipboard, it should call the Close method. The clipboard can be opened with multiple calls to the Open method before being closed. Open and Close maintain a count of the number of times the clipboard has been opened and will not close it until Close has been called the same number of times.
