Resolution Sizes for Snapped apps

    Question

  • Are there any guarantees for width sizes of snapped apps in Windows 8? Such as it will always be such and such width regardless of full screen resolution or, it will always be such and such percent of the full screen resolution?

    The reason I'm asking is because there is an application I am building for a business, and they have specific UI requirements. In order to meet those requirements I must know that I will never have less then a certain amount of pixels in my width and build my UI to those requirements.

  • Snap views are always 320 pixels wide. Guidelines for snapped and fill views provide more information.

    Awesome. I saw that page before but I guess I overlooked the information. Thanks.

    This is only true from a developer's point of view.

    For the pedantic ones like me: Snap views are NOT always 320px wide. If they were, they'd be only one inch wide on a 300dpi screen. In fact it's Width= (320px * system-supplied scaling factor).

    But since scaling is done by the system and a developer doesn't need to care, Andrei is perfectly right.
