Can I make a app which can show on screen display on desktop and metro style?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have to implement a app which can show OSD (on screen display) on both desktop and metro style.
    I've check the toast, dialogbox, popup menu, but these aren't what I want.                       
    The app I want is just like the below pic (The flight mode off).                                                       
    When I got some event, then system will show the OSD on both desktop and metro style.            
    Can anybody provide some  samples or references.                                                 
    Thanks a lot.

  • Toasts would be the appropriate way to implement this. In what way are they not sufficient for your needs?

  • As far as I know, the size of the toast can't be changed.

    I have to allocate the appropriate size and location for my project.

    Is it possible to change a toast's size and location?

  • No. There is no way provided to do what you ask. I recommend that you write your app to follow the Windows style guidelines.
