Convert desktop application UI --> Windows Store app UI

    Question

  • I have a application similar to Visual Studio in UI design for a DSL I have created. I would like to create a metro app for it. How would go about turning a Visual Studio-like design into modern style UI.

  • You will need to go through the specific scenarios that are important to your app to determine how best to alter their UI design.

    Visual Studio itself is a good example of an app which doesn't work well as a Windows Store app. Note that it is provided only as a desktop app.

  • I would really start here and jump down to the languages or design templates.  It isn't a simple answer but this will guide you through the process.
