Navigation arrows and Page Titles in Metro UI, what are the correct guidelines?


  • Hi,

    I am a little confused as to what is best practice when it comes to placing navigation icons and titles on a page.

    The SplitPage template first page displays a "left" arrow followed by the title of the page to "navigate to" ("Collection title lo....), while the "Navigation Application " template displays a left arrow followed by the title of the current page.

    So this is very confusing. I am not sure when the 'text' that follows the arrow should be the 'title' of the page to "navigate to" or the title of the "current page". Do the METRO guidelines say something about this?

  • Hi M,

    The split page template does not show where you are going to navigate to.  It shows the current collection title so it is the same as your other example.
