  • Here is a way to learn about AppBar navigation:

    - download XAML AppBar ControlSample

    - execute Scenario 3 in particular since it is navigation related between 2 pages, using button for Backward navigation

    - if you want to see how this works with a TopAppBar instead of a BottomAppBar, just perform a "Edit>Find & Replace>Replace in Files" of:

    "BottomAppBar" with "TopAppBar" for "Entire Solution". You should have 9 hits.

    - rerun


    So, you'll have a base for starting your work ...

  • Hi Weblineindia,

    Which language and UI layer are you using so we can move this to the correct forum? The UI Design for Windows Store apps forum is for discussion of how to design the app's UI. Implementation questions should be posted in the appropriate language forum.

    It would help if you could provide more detailed information about what specifically you are looking for help with. It may help if you can provide pictures of what you would like, the code that you are currently using, and an explanation of where your code does what you want and where you would like it to act differently.

  • The Finance app's TopAppBar contains custom designed DropDown controls.

    I believe Weblineindia simply wants to know how to create/code/style/... this kind of controls.

                          ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource itemsViewSource}}"
                          ItemTemplate="{StaticResource TopAppBarItemTemplate}"
                        <Style TargetType="ListViewItem">
                            <Setter Property="Padding"
                                    Value="0" />
                            <Setter Property="Margin"
                                    Value="0" />
