How does one go about removing the GridView mouseover highlighting and click/touch effect in the Windows 8 Metro environment? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have four separate information sections I'd like to display in my app. I have setup a GridView to provide a nice horizontal scrollable list, so the user can swipe side to side to view different areas of my app. The overall goal here is to make an app similar to the built-in preview apps like "finance", "weather", or "news".

    I have set SelectionMode="None" but this does not remove the mouse over highlighting or the click/touch "bounce" effect. As stated above, I would like to have similar "scrolling" functionality to the built-in apps, but I can't seem to get my GridView to behave the same way.

    Is there a way to achieve what I want with the GridView or do these built-in apps use a custom built control to achieve this?

    I also reached out to StackOverflow, but have yet to have any luck there yet either.

  • Are you programming in XAML or HTML?

  • You can change the template of the GridViewItem.

    1. Edit Additional Template | Edit ItemContainerStyle | Edit Copy

    2. Remove the storyboard for PointOver.
