Property Value

Type: Microsoft.Devices.Radio..::.RadioRegion
Returns RadioRegion.


Defaults to RadioRegion.UnitedStates. For more information see RadioRegion.

CurrentRegion is not persistent across sessions. As a best practice, your application can check and verify that the CurrentRegion property returns the intended value when the radio is being tuned.


FM radio is supported only in apps that target Windows Phone OS 7.1. If you use the FMRadio class in apps that target Windows Phone OS 8.0 or later, a RadioDisabledException indicates that the FM radio feature is not available. On Windows Phone 8 devices with a build of 8.0.10322 or greater, the run-time exception may not occur if you use the FMRadio API. However, the FMRadio API is not supported for apps that target Windows Phone OS 8.0.
