JumpList::ShowFrequentCategory Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether frequently used items are displayed in the Jump List.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Shell
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.

property bool ShowFrequentCategory {
	bool get ();
	void set (bool value);
<object ShowFrequentCategory="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if frequently used items are displayed in the Jump List; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The contents of the Frequent category are managed by the Windows shell. To display frequently used items in the Jump List, set the ShowFrequentCategory property to true.

The Recent and Frequent categories often contain many of the same jump items. As a result, applications typically display either the Recent or the Frequent category in the Jump List, but not both.

The following example shows a JumpList configured to show the Frequent category. This example is part of a larger example available in the JumpList class overview.

<JumpList ShowRecentCategory="True"
