ListingInformation Description is empty

    Question

  • Hi

    Description field in ListingInformation for some reason is empty. To save time:
    * i'm using CurrentApp::LoadListingInformationAsync()

    * there is valid connection to the internet and store

    * my app is already in the store

    * all other fields are filled with proper informations (Name, FormattedPrice)

    * description is filled when I use CurrentAppSimulator (of course in certified app I don't use it)

    * to save even more time here's an example code:

    task<ListingInformation^> listingTask(CurrentApp::LoadListingInformationAsync());
    listingTask.then([this](task<ListingInformation^> t)
    {
       try
       {
          ListingInformation^ listing = t.get();
          std::wstring desc = listing->Description->Data(); // DESC IS EMPTY
       }
       catch(Platform::Exception ^exception)
      {
               
      }
    });

    Where is a problem? In my code, app description or in the store?

  • Hi,

    We should use CurrentAppSimulator instead of CurrentApp before we upload our app to Windows Store.

    Please take a look of this

  • Hi Jesse,

    I know that I should use CurrentAppSimulator. I was wondering what will happen when I use CurrentApp during development, when my app is already in the store; from my observations other  fields are correct, but description is empty. I was thinking: "maybe this feature works only for apps installed directly from the store?", so I made an update, and guess what? - descripition in version downloaded and installed from the store was empty.

    Best regards,

    M.

  • Hi,

     

    I think this should be Windows Store's issue. I would suggest you to get help from  https://getsupport.microsoft.com/
