win8_livetile_notification_image_add

Add images to a Live Tile notification.

Syntax:

win8_livetile_notification_image_add(image);


Argument Description
image The template that the live tile notification should take (see below)


Returns: N/A


Description

This function can be used to define an image for a Live Tile notification. You must have called win8_livetile_notification_begin before using this function, and you may need to call this it more than once if the Live Tile Template requires it. The image can be either from a local source (in which case the directory to get the file from must be preceded by ms-appx:///. See the example given below.) or from a URL.

NOTE: This function can also apply to Secondary tiles when used along with win8_livetile_notification_secondary_begin.


Example:

var expiryTime;
expiryTime = date_current_datetime();
expiryTime = date_inc_minute(expiryTime, 5);
win8_livetile_notification_begin("tileWideImageCollection");
win8_livetile_notification_expiry(expiryTime);
win8_livetile_notification_tag("tag0");
win8_livetile_notification_image_add("ms-appx:///" + working_directory + "WideTile_Logo.png");
win8_livetile_notification_image_add("ms-appx:///" + working_directory + "WideTile_SmallScreen_1.png");
win8_livetile_notification_image_add("ms-appx:///" + working_directory + "WideTile_SmallScreen_2.png");
win8_livetile_notification_image_add("ms-appx:///" + working_directory + "WideTile_SmallScreen_3.png");
win8_livetile_notification_image_add("ms-appx:///" + working_directory + "WideTile_SmallScreen_4.png");
win8_livetile_notification_end();

The above code will push a new Live Tile notification through to Windows 8, with 5 images will shown for 5 minutes.
