Examples

The following example shows how to use the BackgroundTaskCompletedEventArgs class with a BackgroundTaskCompletedEventHandler delegate to monitor background task completion while the app is in the foreground. Note that this depends on the background task to report status via LocalSettings.

private async void OnCompleted(IBackgroundTaskRegistration task,
                               BackgroundTaskCompletedEventArgs args)
{
    var settings = ApplicationData.Current.LocalSettings;
    var key = task.TaskId.ToString();
    string status = settings.Values[key].ToString();

    //
    // UI element updates should be done asynchronously.
    //
    await Dispatcher.RunAsync(CoreDispatcherPriority.Normal,
    () =>
    {
        ExampleProgressElement.Text = "Task completed with status: " + status;
    });
}

Remarks

The system generates this class and passes it as an argument to the application's BackgroundTaskCompletedEventHandler handler.
