Remarks

Learn more about providing updates for files that your app offers in the Quickstart: Providing file services through and in the Windows.Storage.Pickers.Provider namespace reference.

A CachedFileUpdaterActivatedEventArgs object is passed to the app's activated event handler when the user saves a file that requires content management from the app. This type of activation is indicated by the ActivationKind value returned by the Kind property.

Apps written in JavaScript must listen for and handle Activated events.

Windows Store app using C++, C#, or Visual Basic typically implement activation points by overriding methods of the Application object. The default template app.xaml code-behind files always include an override for OnLaunched, but defining overrides for other activation points such as OnCachedFileUpdaterActivated is up to your app code.

All Application overrides involved in an activation scenario should call Activate() in their implementations.

Examples

The File picker contracts sample demonstrates how to respond to a CachedFileUpdater activation point.


// CachedFileUpdater activated event handler
protected override void OnCachedFileUpdaterActivated(CachedFileUpdaterActivatedEventArgs args)
{
    var CachedFileUpdaterPage = new SDKTemplate.CachedFileUpdaterPage();
    CachedFileUpdaterPage.Activate(args);
}

// Overloaded method to respond to CachedFileUpdater events
public void Activate(CachedFileUpdaterActivatedEventArgs args)
{
            // Get file picker UI
            cachedFileUpdaterUI = args.CachedFileUpdaterUI;

            cachedFileUpdaterUI.FileUpdateRequested += CachedFileUpdaterUI_FileUpdateRequested;
            cachedFileUpdaterUI.UIRequested += CachedFileUpdaterUI_UIRequested;

            switch (cachedFileUpdaterUI.UpdateTarget)
            {
                case CachedFileTarget.Local:
                    scenarios = new List<Scenario> { new Scenario() { Title = "Get latest version", ClassType = typeof(FilePickerContracts.CachedFileUpdater_Local) } };
                    break;
                case CachedFileTarget.Remote:
                    scenarios = new List<Scenario> { new Scenario() { Title = "Remote file update", ClassType = typeof(FilePickerContracts.CachedFileUpdater_Remote) } };
                    break;
            }

            Window.Current.Activate();
        }

For C#, args for an OnCachedFileUpdaterActivated override on the Application object references a CachedFileUpdaterActivatedEventArgs object. The OnCachedFileUpdaterActivated override is in the App.xaml.cs file and the Activate method is in the CachedFileUpdaterPage.xaml.cs file of the File picker contracts sample.

    Remarks

    This property returns the logged-in user on platforms that only support single-user sessions. For platforms that support multiple users in a session (such as Xbox) this property returns the logged-in user that the app was activated for.

    This property returns null when a multi-user application is activated with no specific user context.

    Multi-user apps can use this property to allow or restrict app behavior. For example, you might restrict access to content or features based on the user’s credentials.
