The figure below illustrates the Windows Modern UI style.
1. Overview screen
Static or animated (live) tiles that navigate users to other applications
2. Mortage Rates screen
A child application module with multiple flat tabs
3. Listing screen
Another child application module accessible from the overview screen tiles
A typical Windows Modern application is based on the following concepts.
- A single-form application with no floating dialogs, messages or child forms. All popup dialogs are replaced by Windows-inspired Flyouts.
- The application runs in full-screen mode.
- Main application form and controls have a flat design with thin or no borders.
- Toolbars are initially hidden and pop up on right-click.
To build a Windows Modern UI-inpired application that meets all of the above requirements, use the Application UI Manager's WindowsUI View. Refer to the following tutorials to learn more.
Use the Tile Control component if you only need to create tiles. For more complex multi-screen applications, utilize the Document Manager component.
