Fullscreen Tool Button in Title Bar

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm developing with the Developer Preview. I notice that several Windows 10 Apps have a tool button next to the minimize, restore, maximize buttons that is used to toggle full screen on and off. Its a diagonal double sided arrow. I don't get that for free in my Windows Store Application apparently. What do I have to do to get that tool button in my app?

    Thanks

    Brian

  • I see what happened, the project you sent me is the result of the Windows 10 template, as you can see in the following screenshot:

    The template that adds the full screen toggle button that you describes, is in a different template, as you can see in the following screenshot:

    Hope this helps.

  • Hello duffybr, What version of VS are you using? Currently with Visual Studio 2015 CTP6 you have that button for free in Universal Applications template. You can download it from here https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/downloads/visual-studio-2015-ctp-vs.aspx

  • Its definitely a UAP app. Says Universal App Platform in parentheses next to the project name in Solution Explorer

  • Could you please upload your project (if possible) to your one drive account and give me read permissions (msdn_ver@hotmail.com) to download it? Ensure that your project compiles please.
