Type Description

true, if the current sub menu item is shown as a preview directly in the main menu below the sub menu button; otherwise, false.


With the HamburgerSubMenu.Items collection, you specify items of the current sub menu. These items are displayed in the fly-out panel invoked by clicking or tapping the sub-menu button. It is also possible to display sub menu items directly in the main menu below the sub menu button, as a preview. To display a particular item in a preview, set its ShowInPreview property to true. See an example below.


<Layout:HamburgerSubMenu Content="Folders">
        <FontIcon FontFamily="Segoe MDL2 Assets" Glyph="&#xE8B7;" />
        <Layout:HamburgerSubMenuNavigationButton Content="Outbox" RightContent="12" NavigationTargetType="local:HamburgerMenuDemo_OutboxPage"/>
        <Layout:HamburgerSubMenuNavigationButton Content="Inbox" RightContent="142" ShowInPreview="True" NavigationTargetType="local:HamburgerMenuDemo_InboxPage"/>
        <Layout:HamburgerSubMenuNavigationButton Content="Drafts" RightContent="2" ShowInPreview="True" NavigationTargetType="local:HamburgerMenuDemo_DraftsPage"/>
