Introduction

public struct DlcData : IEquatable<AppId_t>,
IEquatable<uint>,
IEquatable<AppData>,
IComparable<AppData>,
IComparable<AppId_t>,
IComparable<uint>
Wraps the concept of a DLC in a simple struct. This struct is implicitly convertible to and from uint, AppData and the native Steam API type of AppId_t

public bool IsSubscribed => get;
Returns true if the user is subscribed to this DLC ... that is does this user own or otherwise currently have access to this DLC.

Is Installed
