MediaCapture.InitializeAsync() | initializeAsync() method

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Initializes the MediaCapture object, using default settings.

Syntax


Public Function InitializeAsync() As IAsyncAction

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: IAsyncAction

Returns a IAsyncAction object that is used to control the asynchronous operation.

Remarks

InitializeAsync will launch a consent prompt to get the user's permission for the app to access the microphone or camera. InitializeAsync should be called from the main UI thread of your app. For more information, see Guidelines for enabling sensitive devices.

In apps that use C# or C++, the first use of the MediaCapture object to call InitializeAsync should be on the STA thread. Calls from an MTA thread may result in undefined behavior.
