Examples

The File Access sample shows you how to use writeTextAsync(file, contents) to write text to a file.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

In the example, file is a local variable that contains a storageFile that represents the file to write.

Although the writeTextAsync methods don't have a return value, you can still perform additional tasks after the text is written to the file, as the example shows.
