API functionality demonstrated in this sample

The below code sample should be considered for legacy reasons only. For the most up to date Windows code samples, see the newer and more detailed Windows Universal code sample

The following aspects of the API are covered in this sample. You can find additional documentation at the links below.


Tools and Libraries you will need to download, install, and configure for your development environment.

Be sure you enable the Windows Phone SDK when you install Visual Studio. If you don't, you will need to uninstall and re-install Visual Studio to get those features.

NuGet packages used in the sample. These are handled using the package manager, as described in the setup instructions. These should update automatically at build time; if not, make sure your NuGet package manager is up-to-date. You can learn more about the packages we used at the links below.


Using the sample

After you've setup your development tools, and installed the prerequisites listed above,...

  1. Download the repo as a ZIP file to your local computer, and extract the files. Or, clone the repository into a local copy of Git.
  2. Open the project in Visual Studio.
  3. Get a client ID string and copy it into the file .../MainPage.xaml.cs (~line 63).
  4. Build and run the app (F5).

    (If your copy of NuGet is up-to-date, it should automatically update the packages. If you get package-not-found errors, update NuGet and rebuild, and that should fix it.)

  5. Sign in to your Microsoft account in the running app.

  6. Allow the app to create new pages in OneNote.
