DeviceInformationUpdate class

Contains updated properties for a DeviceInformation object.

Syntax


/* For information about creating or accessing this object, see Remarks. */

public sealed class DeviceInformationUpdate

Public NotInheritable Class DeviceInformationUpdate

public ref class DeviceInformationUpdate sealed 

Members

The DeviceInformationUpdate class has these types of members:

Properties

The DeviceInformationUpdate class has these properties.

PropertyAccess typeDescription

Id

Read-only

The DeviceInformation ID of the updated device.

Kind

Read-only

Gets the type of device for the updated device.

Properties

Read-only

The changed properties in a update to a DeviceInformation object.

 

Remarks

The Updated event receives a DeviceInformationUpdate, as shown in the example.

You can also instantiate a DeviceInformationUpdate object to pass to Update.

Examples

This example incrementally enumerates devices, adding them to a list each time a device is found, and also watching for updates. Once enumeration is complete, the app prints a list of devices. The app also prints a message if devices are added, updated, or removed after the initial enumeration completes.
