How to read from dht11 ? Raspberry C# UWP

My question is: Please how can i read from dht11 temperature and humidity? Please I found only big codes on the internet like 600 lines. I just want to enter humidity and temperature into textboxes . I have raspberry 2b+, Universal windows application.
Hello ! Do you think it is good code for dht11 ? Is it Working To you ? I use 3.3 V , Visual Studio 2015, Gpio 4 for data.
using Sensors.Dht;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Linq;
using TemperatureSensor.Client.Common;
using Windows.Devices.Gpio;
using Windows.UI.Xaml;
using Microsoft.Azure.Devices.Client;
using Newtonsoft.Json;
using System.Text;
namespace TemperatureSensor.Client
public sealed partial class MainPage : BindablePage
private DispatcherTimer _dispatchTimer;
private GpioPin _temperaturePin;
private IDht _dhtInterface;
private List<int> _retryCount;
private DateTimeOffset _startedAt;
public MainPage()
// call the method to initialize variables and hardware components
// set interval of timer to 1 second
_dispatchTimer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1);
// invoke a method at each tick (as per interval of your timer)
_dispatchTimer.Tick += _dispatchTimer_Tick;
// initialize pin (GPIO pin on which you have set your temperature sensor)
_temperaturePin = GpioController.GetDefault().OpenPin(4, GpioSharingMode.Exclusive);
// create instance of a DHT11
_dhtInterface = new Dht11(_temperaturePin, GpioPinDriveMode.Input);
// start the timer
// set start date time
_startedAt = DateTimeOffset.Now;
// method to initialize variables and hardware components
private void InitHardware()
_dispatchTimer = new DispatcherTimer();
_temperaturePin = null;
_dhtInterface = null;
_retryCount = new List<int>();
_startedAt = DateTimeOffset.Parse("1/1/1");
private async void _dispatchTimer_Tick(object sender, object e)
DhtReading reading = new DhtReading();
reading = await _dhtInterface.GetReadingAsync().AsTask();
if (reading.IsValid) // if we are able to capture value, display those
this.Temperature = Convert.ToSingle(reading.Temperature);
this.Humidity = Convert.ToSingle(reading.Humidity);
else // log if the reading is not in valid state
Debug.WriteLine(string.Format("IsValid: {0}, RetryCount: {1}, TimedOut: {2}, Humidity: {3}, Temperature: {4}", reading.IsValid, reading.RetryCount, reading.TimedOut, reading.Humidity,
catch(Exception ex) // log any exception that occurs
#region application properties
private float _humidity = 0f;
public float Humidity
return _humidity;
this.SetProperty(ref _humidity, value);
public string HumidityDisplay
return string.Format("{0:0.0}% RH", this.Humidity);
private float _temperature = 0f;
public float Temperature
return _temperature;
SetProperty(ref _temperature, value);
public string TemperatureDisplay
return string.Format("{0:0.0} °C", this.Temperature);
Hi ajvnSlovakia,
This is indeed the sample for GPIO and DHT11. From
GPIO OneWire
Create an app that uses GPIO to read from the DHT11, a temperature and humidity sensor that uses a single-wire protocol
If it is not working for you, please explain where it is failing.
