Remarks

SlideGroup and SplitGroup containers have three levels or nodes displayed in separate screens:

  • Normal screen - the first screen displayed as you dive into a group. Displays all the documents a group contains.

    DocumentManager - Normal Zoom - Split and Slide

  • Detail screen - displayed when a Document within a SlideGroup or a SplitGroup is maximized.
  • Overview screen - displays all documents within the current container as tiles. Available via the ‘Overview’ button on an action bar at runtime.

    DocumentManager - Overview Zoom

Each of these screens is labeled with a corresponding WindowsUIView.ZoomLevel property value.

The Overview method activates an Overview screen for the current IContentContainer object. If a PageGroup or a Page object is passed as the container parameter, the method returns false.
