  • The WinJS.UI.NavBar control is only available on the Windows 8.1 Developer Preview build, that is, it's part of WinJS 2.0 Preview and is not available in WinJS 1.0 on Win8. That's my guess.

  • Hi,

    For a navigation bar un WinJS 1.0 (Windows 8) you could use an AppBar positioned on top and with the sticky property set to true.

  • I should have been using Windows 8.1. Thank you all for the quick responses, I was unable to respond that I had figured out the issue due to the long weekend.
