Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.

Provide a more detailed description of the purpose of the article. The overview is optional if the detail is fully captured by the Abstract


In complex cases you may need to provide information on the framework needed in order to implement and use the code snippet. For example, a Bluetooth connection must be established in order to use the code snippet "send a file via Bluetooth OBEX". You can refer to an already existing code example.

Note that you wouldn't include the SDK used here if that is obvious from context. You would include SDK information in the ArticleMetaData as this allows users to judge the likely relevance of the article on current SDKs.

Project file (optional)

The following capabilities and libraries are required:


Header file

Not the complete file but relevant code blocks.


Source file

You should link to the complete source code in your Github repository, and call out relevant code blocks here.

You do not need to provide complete error handling but it should be commented as TODO for developers.



Explain what the code snippet is expected to do.

Test application and other supplementary information (optional)

If you currently have an app in the store that has implemented what is described here, you can link to it as an example.
