Share Charm fails to dispatch event

    Question

  • I'm currently working on integrating share functionality into my app.

    In my app I try to generate a texture for a screenshot. In my current situation, the game will crash due to my own errors, and that's understandable. The problem is that if I try to attempt another iteration the Share Charm will not ever complete it's progress bar animation when trying to get info from my app.

    This also is the case when trying to use the C++ Share Sample, it won't finish the animation either. Only after a full restart am I able to try another test, and this becomes very tedious.

    Would you please provide us the whole codes to reproduce this issue,

    You can upload your project to skydriver

    It is not necessary that you send out the whole of your project. We just need a simplest sample to reproduce the problem. You can remove any confidential information or business details from it.

    If you don't want to upload the sample code, you can try to get the paid support from https://getsupport.microsoft.com/

    Best regards,

  • I have the same problem and I see this blog post http://tozon.info/blog/post/2012/12/04/Share-charm-stopped-working-while-debugging-Windows-Store-app.aspx

    Seems that this guy is right saying that the Share broker will stop working if you stop the app by Visual Studio when sharing is not completed. Just be careful and try to make sure that you step out of the DataRequested event first or restart explorer.exe to restore the Share service.
