Adding app settings (Windows Store apps using C#/VB/C++ and XAML)
You can implement the Settings contract so that users can access your app's settings from the Settings charm.
Implement the Settings contract to:
- Provide users with a consolidated place for fast, in-context access to settings that affect their current Windows Store app. A light-dismiss settings UI enables users to quickly adjust the behavior of the app and return to the experience they were in.
- Expose app-specific settings commands along with settings and information automatically exposed by the system.
- Provide access to your settings UI at all times without sacrificing application real estate or having to build navigation to and from a setting page.
