What happened to http://schemas.microsoft.com/robotics/2006/09/xinputgamepad.html ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In 

    XBoxCtrlGraphic.xaml.cs

    on line 25 

    XInputContract

    is set to

    http://schemas.microsoft.com/robotics/2006/09/xinputgamepad.html

    When I try to retrieve this URL I get a 404. Has something happened to this?

  • This is a Contract Identifier which is a unique name for a contract and it just happens to be in the format of a URI. It is not a valid URL, so you will never find a web page at this address.

    We chose this format because it is easily human readable, and also easy to make unique. It is certainly better than using GUIDs for Contract Identifiers!
