Can't figure out how to link an item from an RSS feed to the original website

    Question

  • So I've create my app in appstudio and now just polishing it off in Visual Studio Ulitmate 2013 and Blend. In this app I've put an Rss feed within a "Gallery" which displays the image and a title. I can't seem to find the right code in Visual Studio which would allow me to redirect the user to the webpage post specific to the item the user selected on this RSS feed. Right now when the user selects a particular item on this Rss feed, it redirects the user to just shows this particular item only it's displayed by itself in the window. Hope this made sense...

  • Hi dndlstlr,

    You can use Launcher.LaunchUriAsync() method to open a web page to show the content.

    Take a look Launcher class, for instance the RSS feed link to Microsoft.com, we can use the following code

    Launcher.LaunchUriAsync(new Uri("http://www.microsoft.com"));

    If you still have problem, feel free to let me know.
