What is the alternative for system.componentmodel.expandableobjectconverter in WinRT.?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

          I have been working on a metro app, which imports google contacts. For this I need system.componentmodel.expandableobjectconverter. Learnt from some of the articles that this has been suppressed due to security reasons.. So What will be the alternative for this namespace for using in a metro app??

  • Hello,

    please check out this thread


    Unfortunately, there is no alternate mechanism right now but they are considering it for the future.

    In general, are you directly using the expandableobjectconverter class or indirectly via the google.gdata.client namespace?

    much appreciated,
