Syntax


Public Shared ReadOnly Property MostRecentlyUsedList As StorageItemMostRecentlyUsedList

Property value

Type: StorageItemMostRecentlyUsedList

The most recently used (MRU) list object.

Remarks

Note  If you want to respond to StorageItemMostRecentlyUsedList.ItemRemoved events you must register your event handle every time you get a new reference to the StorageItemMostRecentlyUsedList.
 

Examples

This example shows you how to use the MostRecentlyUsedList property to store a file that was picked by the user so that you can keep track of the users most recently used files.



var openPicker = new Windows.Storage.Pickers.FileOpenPicker();
openPicker.pickSingleFileAsync().then(function (pickedFile) {
    if (pickedFile) {
        // Store the file to access again later
        var listToken = Windows.Storage.AccessCache.StorageApplicationPermissions.mostRecentlyUsedList.add(pickedFile);

        // Add code to process the file that the user picked
    } else {
        // No file
    }
});

Make sure you check that a file was picked before you process the pickedFile (a StorageFile object), as shown in the example.
