Remarks

The Updated event is raised when the DisplayName or DiscoveryData for a peer app changes. You can use the Id property to uniquely identify the peer app and update your UI.

Important

For Windows Phone 8.x apps, calling PeerFinder.ConnectAsync from within an Updated event handler will fail. Instead, call it outside of this event handler, for example, when the user has explicitly chosen to connect to a peer.

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>();

        // PeerFinder must be started first.
        return;
    }

    if (_peerWatcherIsRunning)
    {
        // PeerWatcher is already running.
        return;
    }

        {
            _peerWatcher = PeerFinder.CreateWatcher();

        }
