Is the token from FutureAccessList still useful after the application restarted?

    Question

  • If I use FutureAccessList and insert a folder there(the user already picked a folder via FolderPicker), then I store the token in Storage::Current->LocalSetting, so after the application restarted, whether the token is still useful for getting the folder?  Thanks.

  • Same idea. Both lists do basically the same thing.

    For your case MostRecentlyUsedList seems to fit better.

  • Yes. Persisting the access is the point of the FutureAccessList.

    Thanks, Rob.   How about the MostRecentlyUsedList ?  In my scenario , the app will create some log files in local folder, when the user wants to collect those files, the client will ask the user to pick a folder and then copy all the files in the local folder to the selected folder. Since currently the user has to pick a folder every time, I want to add a check box to give the user a choice - "Use previous folder" . Then the user just pick a folder once.  So which one  the best choice ? The FutureAccessList or the MostRecentLyUsedList ? From MSDN, it seems both of them match my scenario.

    Regards.

  • Hello Rob

    Do you know if the FutureAccessList is preserved even after an app is updated by the Windows store ?

    => Can we store tokens in Package LocalState, then re-use them after an app update ?

    Thank you.
