PeerFinder.ConnectionRequested | connectionrequested event

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Occurs when a remote peer requests a connection using the ConnectAsync method.

Syntax


function onConnectionRequested(eventArgs) { /* Your code */ }
 
// addEventListener syntax
peerFinder.addEventListener("connectionrequested", onConnectionRequested);
peerFinder.removeEventListener("connectionrequested", onConnectionRequested);
 
- or -

peerFinder.onconnectionrequested = onConnectionRequested;


Event information

Delegate TypedEventHandler<Object, ConnectionRequestedEventArgs>

Remarks

The ConnectionRequested event occurs when a remote peer calls the FindAllPeersAsync method, finds the current peer, and passes that peer information to the ConnectAsync method to request a connection.

Important  

The proximity APIs do not provide authentication, encryption, or message integrity. Do not use proximity to exchange user sensitive information such as passwords, financial data, text messages, email, photographs, or government id numbers.
