Setting Presence Information

Presence information for a player is set by using the SignedInGamer.Presence property, which is a reference to a GamerPresence object. GamerPresence has two properties that are used to set presence information:

  • PresenceMode, which is set to one of the values of GamerPresenceMode.

    GamerPresenceMode contains values that represent strings describing what the player is doing in your game. For a full description of each string, see the GamerPresenceMode reference topic.

  • PresenceValue, which is an integer that provides a numeric value used with presence modes such as Stage, Level, and Score.
