  • Hi,

    is this possible? Can you build a Treeview in Metro-Style via XAML and data-binding?

    Thanks

  • Hi Lowterm,

    There is no TreeView control provided for Metro style apps.  I would recommend thinking through your design to see if there is a better way to achieve it than a TreeView.  If not, then you would need to implement your own or use a 3rd party control.

  • This post is almost two years old, and I find myself in the same boat. Everyone has their own point of view, but for me, this is about porting Windows 7 applications onto a tablet. Microsoft needs to put the corporate market first, because let's face it, the hipsters are not staying up all night to purchase Surface 2 tablets.

    To answer the original question, Component One does have a treeview control in their latest offering. I haven't tried it yet, so I cannot vouch for how good it is.

    This issue isn't going away, so if anyone has additional insights on how to get a good treeview control in the Windows RT environment, I'd love to hear it.
