[WP8.1] Can I set custom thumbnail for StorageFile? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!
    I want set thumbnail for file that I created (before or after doesn't matter) in my Windows Phone application. 
    Can I do this or not. If yes - how can I do this?
    StorageFile.CreateStreamedFileAsync method doesn't supported for Windows Phone  8.1. It is one way that I knew for set thumbnail for StorageFile.

  • I'm afraid there is not a method for you to set thumbnail for a StorageFile in Windows Phone 8.1.

    However, it is possible for you to get the thumbnail with the StorageFile.GetThumbnailAsync method Magnus mentioned above, or use the GetScaledImageAsThumbnailAsync method.

  • Hi Nikita Bondarenko,

    As @Victory S said, there is not a method for us to set thumbnail for a StorageFile in Windows Phone 8.1.

    I will recommend you submit this feature request/suggestion to Microsoft on this UserVoice forum.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Best Regards,
