    hi there,

    I know that TrialReminder components are new - but the documentation on the is severely lacking.

    It seems that there are ways to simulate the trial reminder in a debug environment - but the whole process flow is a little confusing.

    e.g. what is the process if the trial period expires? I made an incorrect assumption that the component would look after actually closing the app if the user selects "no" after expiry... but alas the application just keeps on going.

    Would be good to see what an 'expected' workflow would be.

    Hi Grant,

    Thank you for contacting us and for your suggestion about the online documentation.

    We are currently in the process of expanding the documentation articles for the TrialReminders and the new content will be uploaded soon. Until then you can read this blog post, which explains the basic features. As to your questions, the TrialReminders provide a property named IsTrialExpired, which becomes true, when the trial expires. The application is not closed, so you are free to do whatever you find appropriate, e.g. navigate to another page, throw an exception, disable a feature button, etc. While you are creating your application it is not in trial mode, so you will not see the trial notifications. That's when the SimulateTrialInDebugMode property comes handy. It simulates a trial mode, so you will be able to see the notifications the way your users will when they have downloaded a trial version.

    I hope this information helps. If something else is not clear, don't hesitate to write us back.
