  • Hi Pjfitren,

    See Creating and using tiles, toast, and Windows push notifications for information on your first two questions.

    A third party GUI lib could be written, but it would have to be built on API accessible to Metro style apps. You couldn't use a preexisting lib which was built on using Win32 HWNDs.

    The 3rd question,you mean that I can add the third party GUI source,and build under Metro sytle envoronment to libs or dlls, then I can use them in my own project?
