SecondaryTile.DisplayName Property


Gets or sets a name that is associated with and displayed on the tile. This name is displayed on the tile in Start, in the tile's tooltip, next to the small tile representation in the Apps list, and in some Control Panel applications. This property is required when you create a tile. It is the equivalent of the display name declared in the manifest for the app's main tile.

On Windows Phone 8.1, the display name is shown only on the wide secondary tile.

void DisplayName(winrt::hstring value);
public string DisplayName { get; set; }
var string = secondaryTile.displayName;
secondaryTile.displayName = string;
