UWP apps are funny. Unlike regular desktop apps, it’s not always obvious how to store and retrieve data. There are two cases I’m talking about:
- There is no Settings GUI in UWP apps like there was in WPF apps. Previously, an Engineer could right-click on Properties in Visual Studio and set initial values for the App.
- Writing to a file on the file system is not so straightforward. Previously, an Engineer could call something like File.Open() and File.Write() with a path name and content string.
I’m sure these changes are related to UWP working on non-desktop platforms. The UWP way of doing these things is covered on Microsoft’s site.
