  • This forum is for developers discussing writing Metro style apps to run on the Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

    General consumer questions should go to the Windows 8 Microsoft Answers community. IT Pros discussions should be posted on the TechNet forums under the Windows 8 IT Pro category.

    From a developer perspective, take a look at the Guidelines for snapped and fill views.

  • The question context is UI design of metro style apps. The example is a potential use case scenario. The conclusion is from Guidelines that "The snapped view is always 320 TIPs wide" so this scenario would not be feasible?

  • Correct. I suggest that if you're just getting started with Metro style app development you go through the Getting Started documentation so you can get a good idea of what Metro style apps are and what they can and cannot do.
