Where to go from here

Here we talk about how to display a contact card by referencing the Contact manager API sample. This sample demonstrates how to use the ContactManager methods from within Windows Store apps.

We show you how to:

  • Create a contact and apply data to it.
  • Show the contact data in a contact card.
  • Update the contact card with more contact data.
  • Use the contact card to perform operations, such as, adding the contact to the People app, getting details about the contact if it's already in the People app, or calling a phone number that is associated with the contact.

Next, we'll create a contact, apply data to it, and then display that data in a contact card.
