RemoteDevicePicker Control

The RemoteDevicePicker gives you a list of Remote Systems. All the systems must be signed in with the same Microsoft Account (MSA)

Important

Make sure you enable the RemoteSystem capability in your app's package.appxmanifest to access remote system information.

Syntax

RemoteDevicePicker remoteDevicePicker = new RemoteDevicePicker()
{
    Title = "Pick Remote Device",
    SelectionMode = RemoteDevicesSelectionMode.Multiple
};
var result = await remoteDevicePicker.PickDeviceAsync();
await new MessageDialog($"You picked {result.Count.ToString()} Device(s)" + Environment.NewLine + string.Join(",", result.Select(x => x.DisplayName.ToString()).ToList())).ShowAsync();

You can also use default filter types for initializing. Like Below.

RemoteDevicePicker remoteDevicePicker = new RemoteDevicePicker(RemoteSystemDiscoveryType.Proximal, RemoteSystemAuthorizationKind.Anonymous, RemoteSystemStatusType.Any)
{
    Title = "Pick Remote Device",
	SelectionMode = RemoteDevicesSelectionMode.Multiple
};

var remoteSystems = await remoteDevicePicker.PickDeviceAsync();
await new MessageDialog($"You picked {remoteSystems.Count().ToString()} Device(s)" + Environment.NewLine + string.Join(",", remoteSystems.Select(x => x.DisplayName.ToString()).ToList())).ShowAsync();
