Working with the Application Bar - Day 3 - Part 4

10 minutes, 22 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

The application bar allows each page in your Silverlight Phone application to display up to four icons along the bottom, and this group of icons can be expanded to display a list of menu commands. This video demonstrates how to uncomment out the Application Bar template on a new Silverlight Phone page, how to add / remove and set the properties of buttons and menu commands, and how to respond to click events for each of those items.

    Thank you for the tip with the menu bar image to be set to Content - it may have taken you an hour; I would have probably never figured that one out :)  Quirky stuff!

  • RobertoRoberto

    You added icons when the phone is in a dark theme. How can you mke the icons addapt to the theme the user selects?

    @Roberto: always use white icons for the App bar.  It automagically will adapt them to the new theme.

  • Short and sweet, I like it.

    You said you can have a max of 4 menu bar items, could you select one of the tasks from the scroll bar to change those 4 menu items into 4 new ones with new functions?
