Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFireCompletedRaises the Completed event. (Inherited from ChooserBase(Of TTaskEventArgs).)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)

Launch the Photo Chooser application by calling the Show method of the PhotoChooserTask object. Obtain the result of the chooser operation by handling the Completed event.

Important noteImportant Note:

On Windows Phone, your application may be deactivated while the Photo Chooser application is in the foreground. To ensure that your application receives the result of the PhotoChooserTask, the object must be declared with class scope within the PhoneApplicationPage class and you must call the chooser constructor and assign the Completed event delegate within the page’s constructor. For more information about how to handle the activation and deactivation of your application, seeApp activation and deactivation for Windows Phone 8.
