This article covers Uno-specific information for
Windows.UI.StartScreen namespace. For a full description of the feature and instructions on using it, consult the UWP documentation: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/windows.ui.startscreen
Windows.UI.StartScreennamespace provides classes for creating and managing app jump lists.
The APIs are implemented on iOS and Android. Other platforms return
false when calling the
Logo properties on both Android and iOS.
DisplayName may not be empty on Android and iOS - this behavior differs from UWP. If left empty, a single space will be used instead.
Logo property can be initialized only with
ms-appx:-based images. This behavior matches UWP and actually matches native support on both platforms as well.
JumpListItem activation, check the
App.OnLaunched method. Note that when the application is running, the method will still be called again (this behavior matches UWP).
The API supports interoperability with native "app shortcuts". This means items you add using native API instead of
JumpList API will not be overwritten by
JumpList and will appear first in the list of shortcuts. These non-Uno shortcuts will not be accessible in the
JumpList.Items collection. To identify Uno-specific app shortcuts, a
UnoShortcut key is used and set in
ShortcutInfo.Extras on Android and
UIApplicationShortcutItem.UserInfo on iOS.
Note the order of shortcut items on iOS is reversed. This is system default, but you can write a platform-specific snippet that reverses the list before saving to have the same top-down order as on Android and UWP. iOS also limits the number of items that can be displayed at the same time (for example 4 on iPhone 6 Plus), this is device specific.
