Recent Documents and Uri

Ribbon for WPF Forum

We're considering adding the "recent documents" feature to our application. Our "documents" aren't documents in the traditional sense - they're not files, they're entities in a database that have a unique key value. I notice that in your product, a Uri is provided as kind of identifier. Since our "id" isn't a Uri, will we have issues if we don't fill in the Location field of the IDocumentReference? We're looking to store our id in the Tag field instead.

If you don't set the Location, then you won't be able to use RecentDocumentManager.NotifyDocumentOpened. These methods are just helper methods for auto-creating a document reference (if it doesn't exist yet) or setting the LastOpenedDateTime (if it does exist). You also won't be able to use RecentDocumentManager.GetDocumentReference, which just gets a document that has the specified location.

Other than those methods, our code doesn't reference the Location property so you should be able to safely ignore it.
