Enumerating devices (XAML)
- Selecting the device to be used by an application. For example, a voice chat application may use the API to present a list of microphones or webcams for the user to select from, or a photo import app may use the API to present a list of removable storage devices for the user to select from.
- Device discovery and notifications about devices, for apps that use them, such as Windows Store device app.
Here we show you how to do a one-time enumeration of commonly used devices using FindAllAsync.
This tutorial shows you how to enumerate devices dynamically. Then, your app can receive notification if devices are added or removed, or if device properties change.
