Examples

The following example code illustrates how to enumerate a PeerNearMe and add it as a PeerContact to the local ContactManager:

// Displays all contacts and asssociated peer endpoints (PeerEndPoint) in the PeerContactCollection.
private static void DisplayContacts(PeerContactCollection peerContactsCollection)
{
    if (peerContactsCollection == null ||
        peerContactsCollection.Count == 0)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("No contacts to display. To add a contact select option 0 from the menu.");
    }
    else
    {
        foreach (PeerContact pc in peerContactsCollection)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("The contact is: {0}", pc.DisplayName);
            DisplayEndpoints(pc.PeerEndPoints);
        }
    }
    return;
}

//------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
//------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Displays all peer end points (PeerEndPoint) in the PeerEndPointCollection.

private static void DisplayEndpoints(PeerEndPointCollection endpointCollection)
{
    if (endpointCollection == null ||  endpointCollection.Count == 0)
        Console.WriteLine("No peer endpoints in the collection to display.");
    else
    {
        foreach (PeerEndPoint pep in endpointCollection)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("PeerEndPoint is: {0}", pep);
            Console.WriteLine("PeerEndPoint data is:\n  Name: {0}\n EndPoint IP address: {1}\n . Port: {2}\n",
                pep.Name,
                pep.EndPoint.Address,
                pep.EndPoint.Port);

Remarks

This class has no public constructors, since a reference to it is returned by the PeerCollaboration class.

Address books that are associated with PeerContact management include those associated with the host peer and a remote peer. Either computer may collaborate with other peers; when a peer is local to the remote peer but not the host peer, it can be added to the ContactManager of the host peer. Certain operations on the ContactManager class, such as AddContact and DeleteContact, correlate to the associated operations being performed on the Windows Address book of the remote peer.

The host peer has access to this persistent storage for PeerContact information, which can be associated with the applications in which a peer intends to participate. A PeerApplication can identify itself as a user of a ContactManager persistent store on a computer.

Properties

LocalContact LocalContact LocalContact LocalContact

Gets the PeerContact representing the local peer.

SynchronizingObject SynchronizingObject SynchronizingObject SynchronizingObject

When this property value is set, all events not fired as the result of an asynchronous operation will have the associated event handlers called back on the thread that created the specific SynchronizingObject.
