PeerFinder.Stop | stop method

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Stops advertising for a peer connection.

Syntax

Public Shared Sub Stop()

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Remarks

You can call the Stop method to stop the PeerFinder when you no longer want to advertise for or accept new triggered (tapped) or browsed connections. Stop does not close an existing connection. However, the Stop method will cancel outstanding calls to the ConnectAsync method and triggered connection requests. The Stop method does not wait for the cancellation to complete.
