App capabilities


You can call the Stop method to stop the PeerWatcher object. You can register for the Stopped event to be informed when the PeerWatcher has stopped. You must wait for the Stopped event before you can call the Start method to restart the PeerWatcher.

private PeerWatcher _peerWatcher;
private bool _peerWatcherIsRunning = false;
private bool _peerFinderStarted = false;

// The list of peers discovered by the PeerWatcher.
ObservableCollection<PeerInformation> _discoveredPeers = new ObservableCollection<PeerInformation>();
void PeerFinder_StartPeerWatcher(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    if (!_peerFinderStarted)
        // PeerFinder must be started first.

    if (_peerWatcherIsRunning)
        // PeerWatcher is already running.

        if (_peerWatcher == null)
            _peerWatcher = PeerFinder.CreateWatcher();

            // Add PeerWatcher event handlers. Only add handlers once.
            _peerWatcher.Added += PeerWatcher_Added;
            _peerWatcher.Removed += PeerWatcher_Removed;
            _peerWatcher.Updated += PeerWatcher_Updated;
            _peerWatcher.EnumerationCompleted += PeerWatcher_EnumerationCompleted;
            _peerWatcher.Stopped += PeerWatcher_Stopped;

        // Empty the list of discovered peers.

        // Start the PeerWatcher.

        _peerWatcherIsRunning = true;
    catch (Exception ex)
        // Exceptions can occur if PeerWatcher.Start is called multiple times or
        // PeerWatcher.Start is called the PeerWatcher is stopping.

protected override void OnNavigatingFrom(NavigatingCancelEventArgs e)
    if (_peerWatcher != null)
        // Remove event handlers.
        _peerWatcher.Added -= PeerWatcher_Added;
        _peerWatcher.Removed -= PeerWatcher_Removed;
        _peerWatcher.Updated -= PeerWatcher_Updated;
        _peerWatcher.EnumerationCompleted -= PeerWatcher_EnumerationCompleted;
        _peerWatcher.Stopped -= PeerWatcher_Stopped;

        _peerWatcher = null;
private void PeerWatcher_Stopped(PeerWatcher sender, object o)
    _peerWatcherIsRunning = false;
    var result = Dispatcher.RunAsync(CoreDispatcherPriority.Low, () =>
        // Update UI now that the PeerWatcher is stopped.
