Windows.​Networking.​Proximity Windows.​Networking.​Proximity Windows.​Networking.​Proximity Namespace

Definition

Contains classes that support connections between devices that are within close range.

Classes

ConnectionRequestedEventArgs ConnectionRequestedEventArgs ConnectionRequestedEventArgs

Contains properties that are passed to an application with the ConnectionRequested event.

PeerFinder PeerFinder PeerFinder

Enables you to discover other instances of your app on nearby devices and create a socket connection between the peer apps by using a tap gesture or by browsing. For creating Bluetooth socket connections on Windows 8.1 and later, use Windows.Devices.Bluetooth.Rfcomm instead.

PeerInformation PeerInformation PeerInformation

Contains information that identifies a peer.

PeerWatcher PeerWatcher PeerWatcher

Dynamically discovers peer apps within wireless range.

ProximityDevice ProximityDevice ProximityDevice

Enables you to publish messages to proximate devices or subscribe to messages from proximate devices.

ProximityMessage ProximityMessage ProximityMessage

Represents a message that's received from a subscription.

TriggeredConnectionStateChangedEventArgs TriggeredConnectionStateChangedEventArgs TriggeredConnectionStateChangedEventArgs

Contains properties that the TriggeredConnectionStateChanged event passes to an application.

Enums

PeerDiscoveryTypes PeerDiscoveryTypes PeerDiscoveryTypes

Indicates which discovery options are available to use with the PeerFinder class.

PeerRole PeerRole PeerRole

Describes the role of the peer app when connected to multiple peers.

PeerWatcherStatus PeerWatcherStatus PeerWatcherStatus

Describes the status of a PeerWatcher object.

TriggeredConnectState TriggeredConnectState TriggeredConnectState

Indicates the current state of a connection to a peer application.

Delegates

DeviceArrivedEventHandler DeviceArrivedEventHandler DeviceArrivedEventHandler

Describes the method that handles the DeviceArrived event.

DeviceDepartedEventHandler DeviceDepartedEventHandler DeviceDepartedEventHandler

Describes the method that handles the DeviceDeparted event.

MessageReceivedHandler MessageReceivedHandler MessageReceivedHandler

Describes the method that will handle the event that's fired when a message that has been subscribed to has been received.

MessageTransmittedHandler MessageTransmittedHandler MessageTransmittedHandler

Describes the method that will handle the event that's fired when a published message has been transmitted.

Remarks

You can use proximity to connect computers by using a simple tap gesture. If two computers come within 3 centimeters to 4 centimeters of each other, or are tapped together, the operating system of each computer detects the other computer. You can then connect the two computers to share content or publish and subscribe to messages. Proximity also supports discovery of peer devices via Wi-Fi Direct.

Important

The proximity APIs do not provide authentication, encryption, or message integrity. Do not use proximity to exchange user sensitive information such as passwords, financial data, text messages, email, photographs, or government id numbers.

Examples

This example shows how you can use the ProximityDevice class to determine when a device enters and leaves proximity.
