Need + - control as seen in system print charm, in my app for printers

    Question

  • I am new to WPF and Windows Store App development. I need to create a 'form' like UI for printers that is invoked via 'more settings' . For this purpose, I need to use something like a spin control. In the system print charm in Win8, I see a +- control that is used to indicate the number of copies the printer must print. Can somebody tell me if this control is available to developers via WPF? I know we don't have the spin control available as is. 

    Steps:

    Open a print capable application, say IE in metro.

    Press ctrl + P and select any driver.

    Here there is a control with a text area and '+' and '-' sign that I am talking about.

  • This is not a standard control and it is not available ether for desktop WPF applications or for XAML/Windows Store apps.

  • In addition, assuming you develop using XAML/C# or VB, you might find the NumericUpDown in http://winrtxamltoolkit.codeplex.com/ helpful. That would however only solve the 'Windows Store App' aspect of your question.

    Note: XAML/C# or VB language-dependent questions are best posted in the relevant Forum.

  • Thanks. I am using C#. I will probably make a user control to substitute for this. Thanks for the suggestion.
