Child ElementDescription
DataFormat

Specifies a data package format such as text or HTML format that the app can share. It is unique per application in the package and is case sensitive.

SupportedFileTypes (type: CT_CharmsSupportedFileTypes)

Defines the file types that the app can share.

 

Parent Elements

Parent ElementDescription
Extension (in type: CT_ApplicationExtensions)

Declares an extensibility point for the app.

 

Remarks

The Share charm provides access to a list of target apps that can receive data that the user wants to share. This extensibility point enables your app to be included in the list of share targets.

ShareTarget must specify either SupportedFileTypes element, or at least one DataFormat element. It cannot omit both. The schema allows omitting both, but semantic validation will fail.

Examples


<Extension Category="windows.shareTarget">
  <ShareTarget>
    <SupportedFileTypes>
      <SupportsAnyFileType />
    </SupportedFileTypes>
    <DataFormat>Text</DataFormat>
    <DataFormat>Uri</DataFormat>
    <DataFormat>Bitmap</DataFormat>
    <DataFormat>Html</DataFormat>
