Navigation and Windowing in Universal Windows Apps

Sign in to queue

Description

In Windows 10, your creation can end up running on anything from a highly specialized hardware with limited user-interaction displaying only one application view at a time (such as a fitness band), to a general purpose system with touch, mouse, keyboard, and high-DPI monitors displaying multiple applications and application views simultaneously. Throughout this world the user expects an intuitive and familiar model for not only navigating inside your app but also for navigating between apps. This session will cover an overview of the Windows navigation model, taking those concepts and showing how this is built from the basics up to multi-window applications running in both immersive and desktop mode.

    Great session really informative!

    Should the back button in windowed apps work in current build 10074? The following code currently doesn't seem to do anything for me :(

    SystemNavigationManager.GetForCurrentView().AppViewBackButtonVisibility = AppViewBackButtonVisibility.Visible;

    Thanks.
