If you've read the text that USED to exist here before, scratch that. Big Thanks for clarifying what I thought was a win. Due to this, I DID find something interesting in regards to the ExtensibilityApp class (Windows.Phone.System.LockscreenExtensibility.Exte nsibilityApp). I happened to also find a hidden capability "ID_CAP_SHELL_DEVICE_LOCK_UI_API" (Seems to be a locked CAP because it only works on Emulator. I get a deployment error on my if I try including this capability). I suspected that these two worked together, but I wanted to make sure of this.
Before we get started, read through the documentation from this site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...bilityapp.aspx.
We have the following methods:
As usual, Microsoft doesn't really give us much in terms of documentation.. Probably because it isn't meant to be used by the normal developer.
All of these methods have no parameters at all, but I can almost guarantee this has to do with having an application that can control the lock screen.
This thread will be for efforts in breaking this open and seeing whether we can create lockscreen applications..

I've tried this API before. Can't really get it to work cause i don't see any public properties for setting FrameworkElements or anything. Let's just wait for Joe to announce the next update before we try anything

You won't be able to deploy. ID_CAP_SHELL_DEVICE_LOCK_UI_API is restricted at the moment. In terms of FrameworkElements, you're close there. It actually uses a Silverlight app as the LockApp. I was able to deploy test code to the Emulator using that capability, BUT the emulator doesn't contain all of the necessary files in order to actually allow you to run the app

I look to the code of the app (that trick of SD Card) ...
Here's the manifest...
<Capability Name="ID_CAP_NETWORKING" />
<Capability Name="ID_CAP_MEDIALIB_AUDIO" />
<Capability Name="ID_CAP_MEDIALIB_PLAYBACK" />
<Capability Name="ID_CAP_SENSORS" />
<Capability Name="ID_CAP_WEBBROWSERCOMPONENT" />
<Capability Name="ID_CAP_PUSH_NOTIFICATION" />
<Capability Name="ID_CAP_SHELL_DEVICE_LOCK_UI_API" />
And in the end:
<ActivatableClass ActivatableClassId="Nokia.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime.BufferFactory" ThreadingModel="both" />
PS: Microsoft has corrected the bug to view the apps from the SD card with the update 12400.899.
