StorageItemContentProperties class

StorageItemContentProperties class

Provides access to the content-related properties of an item (like a file or folder).


Public NotInheritable Class StorageItemContentProperties
    Implements IStorageItemExtraProperties


The StorageItemContentProperties class has these types of members:


The StorageItemContentProperties class has these methods. With C#, Visual Basic, and C++, it also inherits methods from the Object class.

GetDocumentPropertiesAsync Retrieves the document properties of the item (like a file of folder).
GetImagePropertiesAsync Retrieves the image properties of the item (like a file of folder).
GetMusicPropertiesAsync Retrieves the music properties of the item (like a file of folder).
GetVideoPropertiesAsync Retrieves the video properties of the item (like a file of folder).
RetrievePropertiesAsync Retrieves the specified properties associated with the item.
SavePropertiesAsync() Saves all properties associated with the item.
SavePropertiesAsync(IIterable(IKeyValuePair)) Saves the specified properties and values associated with the item.



You can get a StorageItemContentProperties object using the Properties property that is available on the following objects:

Note  Properties that are get or set using a property handler that is defined by another app (like Microsoft Word) may not be accessible. Instead, you can try to get these properties using a file query that is backed by the system index. For more information, see QueryOptions.

For more code samples about accessing properties, see the File access sample.


This example demonstrates how to retrieve content properties or specified properties from a file using StorageFile.Properties.

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

After GetImagePropertiesAsync completes, imageProperties gets a ImageProperties object. Additionally, after RetrievePropertiesAsync completes, extraProperties gets an object that contains the specified properties.

In the example, file contains a StorageFile that represents the file to retrieve properties for.
