Metro Style Buttons RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good evening to everyone, I hope that this question is not OT but... where I can find some icon for my button in Metro Style? I mean the graphic that windows 8 uses (and Metro Applications too) for his buttons... I do not know where to find them...

    Thanks you in advance!

  • Hi 3rr3,

    Most of the button "icons" used in Metro style apps aren't actually icons: they are symbols from the Segoe UI Symbols font. You can see what exactly is available with the charmap tool. If you are using JavaScript then you can get friendly names for the icon identifiers with the WinJS.UI.AppBarIcon enumeration.
