How to track Custom Variables

Jan 10, 2014 at 12:00 AM
Hi,
I've been using the Microsoft Silverlight Analytics Framework before moving to this SDK and I used to track custom variables with the MSAF but I can't figure out any APIs that do the same task in the GA API for Windows Phone.
Any insights on how one could track those custom variables?
Thanks

You can track custom events by calling SendEvent. For example:
GoogleAnalytics.EasyTracker.GetTracker().SendEvent("test", "userclick", null, 0);
Definition:
public void SendEvent(string category, string action, string label, int value);


fyi: You can also create custom metrics via tracker.SetCustomMetric(...) however custom metrics and dimensions are intended to help group users, not track specific events. For example: This could help group trial vs. paid users.
