Return Value

Type: System.Net.PeerToPeer.Collaboration.PeerContactCollection
PeerContactCollection that contains all contacts within the ContactManager of the remote peer.
If the contact manager is empty, then a collection of size zero (0) is returned.

PeerToPeerException

An invalid value was returned when this method attempted to enumerate a Peer in this peer contact collection.

Calling this method requires a PermissionState of Unrestricted.

The following code example illustrates how to retrieve a PeerContactCollection representing the contacts contained in the local ContactManager:

// Displays all contacts and asssociated peer endpoints (PeerEndPoint) in the PeerContactCollection. 
private static void DisplayContacts(PeerContactCollection peerContactsCollection)
{
    if (peerContactsCollection == null ||
        peerContactsCollection.Count == 0)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("No contacts to display. To add a contact select option 0 from the menu.");
    }
    else
    {
        foreach (PeerContact pc in peerContactsCollection)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("The contact is: {0}", pc.DisplayName);
            DisplayEndpoints(pc.PeerEndPoints);
        }
    }
    return;
}

private static void DisplayEndpoints(PeerEndPointCollection endpointCollection)

    else
