Periodically update Live Tile with local data? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    i want to update the live tile content of my app the way Windows phone can do this => periodically + with local data, for example the next upcomming appointments.

    The "StartPeriodicUpdate" method requires an URI.
    But my app does not need to query an URI - the data is already available locally (appointments for example) but i want to update the live tile periodically.

    How can i use a TileUpdateManager to do this kind of periodicall updates?
    Are periodic updates appropriate for this Task or do i have to use Background Tasks?
