Examples

This example demonstrates the use of the Bitmap property. To use the code in this example, add an event listener to your app to handle the activated event. Then put this code in the function that this event listener calls.


void DataRequested(DataTransferManager sender, DataRequestedEventArgs e)
{
    DataRequestDeferral deferral = e.Request.GetDeferral();
    e.Request.Data.Properties.Title = "Hello World!";
    e.Request.Data.Properties.Description = "This example shows how to share files and images.";
    if (this.dataPackageThumbnail != null)
    {
        e.Request.Data.Properties.Thumbnail = this.dataPackageThumbnail;
    }
    e.Request.Data.SetBitmap(imageStreamRef);
    deferral.Complete();
}

function registerForShare() {
    var dataTransferManager = Windows.ApplicationModel.DataTransfer.DataTransferManager.getForCurrentView();
    dataTransferManager.addEventListener("datarequested", shareImageHandler);
}

function shareImageHandler(e) {
    var request = e.request;
    request.data.properties.title = "Share Image Example";
    request.data.properties.description = "A demonstration that shows how to share an image.";
    var deferral = request.getDeferral();
    Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.current.installedLocation.getFileAsync("images\\smalllogo.png").then(function (thumbnailFile) {
        request.data.properties.thumbnail = Windows.Storage.Streams.RandomAccessStreamReference.createFromFile(thumbnailFile);
        return Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.current.installedLocation.getFileAsync("images\\logo.png");
    }).done(function (imageFile) {
        request.data.setBitmap(Windows.Storage.Streams.RandomAccessStreamReference.createFromFile(imageFile));
        deferral.complete();
    }, function (err) {
        request.failWithDisplayText(err);
    });
}
