How to check which scaling images are downloaded on device

    Question

  • I am developing a windows store app and want to put of images for possible scaling. But it will make app heavy. So my question is whether all images are downloaded on device when app is downloaded or resources which match the scaling are only downloaded? Is there a way to check which size images were downloaded?

  • Hi Rohit,

    The App Bundle system is designed for the scenario you describe. It will let you separate out resources by scale so that only the relevant ones are downloaded to a given system.

    The app shouldn't need to know which scales are available. It can just use the images and let the system handle that.
