is it possible to share a file using share charm which is being downloaded from net RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to download a file from the internet using background thread and share the file on activating the share charm ?

    when I opened the share charm I need to download a file from the server and that file needs to be shared as a storage item to other applications(SkyDrive).

    The API that I am using to download the file will use back ground thread and I will be noticed when the download completes by call back.

    Highly appreciated for your help.

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, we should share the completed file. We can not sharing the file is downloading.

    But, maybe we can share other information, like file name, size.
    Best regards,
