Overview

Events are a useful way to collect data about a user's interaction with interactive components of your app, like button presses or the use of a particular item in a game.

An event consists of four fields that you can use to describe a user's interaction with your app content:
  • String Category
  • String Action
  • String Label
  • Long (Optional) Value

Implementation

To send an event to Google Analytics, call SendEvent(). For example, to measure a button press, you might add this code to a button's Click event handler:
private void ButtonEvent_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    Tracker myTracker = EasyTracker.GetTracker();
    // Where myTracker is an instance of Tracker.
    myTracker.SendEvent("ui_action", "button_press", "play_button", opt_value);
    ... // Your other click handling code.
}

Note: The Google Analytics SDK for Windows 8 and Windows Phone may throttle events, as well as other hits, if a large number of send calls are made in a short period of time.
