How do I display UI in the Contact Picker page when my application is a provider of contacts? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to make my application act as a contacts provider (i.e. a target of the Contact Picker contract). I have successfully received the activation for ContactPicker and have access to the Basket for providing the Contact / Contacts that have been picked. However, I don't know how to display my application's UI (XAML/C++) that allows the user to actually select contacts (i.e. UI which would replace the splash screen for my app within the Contact Picker screen).

    Unfortunately the documentation is very sparse for ContactPicker so far. The only sample I can find is implemented in HTML and thus has a different mechanism (the HTML start page is specified in the manifest).

    I have tried setting the content of the current window but had no success.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • It turns out that setting the content of the current window is the correct way to do it, another issue was causing it to fail when I tried it.
