SettingsCommand Class

Definition

Note

SettingsPane is deprecated, and might not work on all versions of Windows 10. Instead of using a SettingsPane, integrate settings options into the app experience. For more info, see Guidelines for app settings.

Creates a settings command object that represents a settings entry. This settings command can be appended to the ApplicationCommands vector.

Remarks

Note

This class is not agile, which means that you need to consider its threading model and marshaling behavior. For more info, see Threading and Marshaling (C++/CX) and Using Windows Runtime objects in a multithreaded environment (.NET).
