SecondaryTile.RequestCreateAsync | requestCreateAsync methods

Displays the Pin to Start flyout, through which the user can confirm that they want to create the secondary tile, which in turn creates the tile.
The Pin to Start flyout includes a preview of the secondary tile. If more than one version of the tile is available, the user can scroll through options in the flyout and select their choice. They can also provide their own display name for the tile. Finally, the user clicks a button in the flyout to confirm creation of the tile.
Note  To ensure an appropriate and consistent placement of the Pin to Start flyout, we recommend you use RequestCreateForSelectionAsync instead of this method. Note  On Windows Phone 8.1, the secondary tile is created through this call without showing the user a flyout, prompting them for confirmation, or allowing them to choose a tile size or title text. Note that when using the RequestCreateAsync method to pin a secondary tile in Windows Phone Store apps, the app is suspended and the user is taken to the Start screen. This same API call on a PC does not suspend the program. Therefore, be aware that any code called after RequestCreateAsync is not guaranteed to be run before the app is suspended. To avoid this potential issue you should use the OnSuspended event of your app to run any code, such as updating the pinned tile, that should be run before the app suspends. To see an example of this pattern, download and run the Tile update on suspend sample.
