Question about settings UI

    Question

  • The application that I'm working on has rather elaborate settings options that can be frequently changed by the user. I decided to no put them in standard Settings location. I instead created an AppBar that contains the settings UI. Will I be penalized on this when I submit my application for certification? I've seen some application in the store that have all their settings in either an AppBar or a customized menu UI.

  • We can't make any promises or interpretation beyond what is in the cert requirements.

    That said, take a look at the Guidelines for app settings . It sounds like your "settings" don't fall under the settings charm guideline for "adjusted only occasionally" and may be better served on an app bar:

    Don't add commands that are part of the common app workflow. These commands should be placed in the  app bar or on the app canvas.
