Event data for the event.


OnFileActivated is a pre-defined activation point handler that is invoked for a core Activated event when the ActivationKind is File.

An app can register to become the default handler for a certain file type. You should only register for a file type if you expect to handle all file launches for that type of file. In addition to overriding OnFileActivated, your app must also specify an extension point in the package manifest. For more info, see How to handle file activation.

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