Listview and Gridview Items alignment

    Question

  • In Metro the Listview and the Gridview entrys are side by side and not among themselves.
    The User must scroll left to right.
    Can i use the Gridview to Scroll from top to down, like the old Gridview in .Net ?
    Or is this not Metro Style?
    Are there some benefits to use the new Way?

  • The Metro design guidelines are for horizontal scrolling rather than vertical. This is discussed in the Designing UX for apps docs and in some of the earlier posts on the Building Windows 8 blog. You may also want to watch the //build videos which discuss Metro style design.

    Because the guidelines suggest horizontal scrolling, the Gridview supports only that. The ListView supports a single vertical column for where that is appropriate.
