#MSBAND – Update Tiles live data with #VS2015 and #Windows10


Today it is time to show how we can update the information displayed in a Tile in real time. To update the information we need to know

  • The Id of the Tile
  • The Id of the Page
  • The Ids of the controls within the Page

The following code example shows a class that these identifiers are stored as properties and constants. And in line 50, the SetTileData() operation updates the information for labels, bar codes and buttons with these Ids.

To see this example in execution, I created a timer to each a second generates random information and update it in the band.

Finally, the following video shows how the App Windows 10, generates random information and sends it to the Band. It shows this information in the corresponding Page
