The PhoneNumberChooserTask and the EmailAddressChooserTask in the Windows Phone 7 API helps the user to select the Phone Number and the Email Address of the selected contact .

When this chooser is used, the Contacts page is opened for the user to select the Nam . The Phone Number and the Email Address are retreived if it has one from the selected contacts based on the Chooser used .

To retrieve the phone number, all that one should do is to create a new instance of the PhoneNumberChooserTask , attach an phoneNumberChooserTask_Completed Event handler and call the Show method.

PhoneNumberChooserTask PhoneNrChooserTask = new PhoneNumberChooserTask();

PhoneNrChooserTask.Completed += new EventHandler<PhoneNumberResult>(phoneNumberChooserTask_Completed);


void phoneNumberChooserTask_Completed(object sender, PhoneNumberResult e)

  if (e.TaskResult == TaskResult.OK)


The same applies to the EmailAddressChooserTask to.

EmailAddressChooserTask selectEamilAddress = new EmailAddressChooserTask();

selectEamilAddress.Completed += new EventHandler<EmailResult>(emailAddressChooserTask_Completed);


void emailAddressChooserTask_Completed(object sender, EmailResult e)

  if (e.TaskResult == TaskResult.OK)
