Share to custom target RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like my metro app to be able to share a URI with a social networking (Faithlife.com) which does not have its own metro app. Any way for me to do this w/ the share charm?

    My first thought was to have the source app implement a share target itself which would share the URI using the Faithlife.com restful API. The main issue w/ this approach is the share target shows up as the source app in the share charm - I want it to look like Faithlife.com.

    Any ideas for this?

  • It is not possible to do that (Making it look like FaithLife.com).  Sharing to the same app (Source & Target apps being the same) is not the best use of share charm either.

    a. I would instead create an app bar button and use it for this scenario.

    b. At the same time I would also share the Url using the SetUri method in case there is an app (for the social networking site) in the future.
